Shingles: What You Should Know
We will explore the diagnosis of the painful skin condition known as shingles, its relationship to chickenpox, and the increasing risk of occurrence as we age. Successful treatment depends on early recognition. Prevention—by way of a safe and effective vaccine—is the best way to avoid this nasty condition. Presentation will be followed by ample time for questions and answers.
