'Pioneering Women Physicians' program set
COLUMBIANA - Ginger Grilli will present a program titled "Pioneering Women Physicians of Columbiana County During the 1800's" for the Jan. 21 meeting of the Columbiana and Fairfield Township Historical Society to be held at 7 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Columbiana. The program is open to the public.
The program examines the evolution of medicine in the 1800s. It highlights the life and work of seven amazing female doctors who hailed from or practiced in Columbiana County during that time. Grilli's interest in this topic was sparked by her research on Dr. Delia Mary Walker who relocated to Salem in 1896. It led her to discover a group of groundbreaking local women and their contributions to modern medicine and surgery.
Grilli is a doctor's daughter with over 25 years of experience in the healthcare field. She also worked in academia and was a manager with the American Red Cross for many years. She is docent, researcher, and educator for the Salem Historical Society and Salem Storybook Museum. She is active in the Salem Preservation Society and chairs the City of Salem Design Review Board. Grilli and her husband, Rick Drummond, have been restoring the Della Walker House in Salem.

Multiphasic blood screening scheduled
SALEM - Salem Community Hospital's Outreach Services is sponsoring a multiphasic blood screening on Jan. 26 at Family Health Care of Columbiana County, 166 Vine Ave.
Multiphasic screenings can help detect many health problems in their earliest stages, when they are most treatable. For $40, participants receive a basic multiphasic screening, which can reveal conditions that may lead to heart disease, osteoporosis, hepatitis and other liver diseases, as well as existing illnesses such as diabetes and kidney disease.
For an additional $10 each, participants may select a CRP (C-Reactive Protein) screening or a PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) screening. Elevated levels of CRP may indicate an increased risk for developing cardiovascular disease, as well as the presence of inflammatory or infectious diseases. The PSA blood test for men is one of the most effective ways to detect elevated levels of PSA in the bloodstream, which may indicate a variety of disorders. Men considering the PSA screening should consult their primary care physicians to determine if this screening is recommended for them. Appointments are required by calling Family Health Care of Columbiana County at 330-337-3500.
