Penn Med's Health Talk Tuesdays

By Shane M. RSS Mon, July 31, 2023

The Science and Wellness Department invites you to explore and learn about health topics in a new program series. Introducing Penn Med's Health Talk Tuesdays

Skip the waiting room and hear about the latest health advice and research being conducted by the Penn Medicine team. Once a month on Tuesdays from 2–3:30 p.m., we are bringing health professionals to you at the Parkway Central Library location. The first session featured a talk with a registered nurse on stroke awareness and hypertension. An upcoming session will discuss how to maintain a healthy brain as one ages. All of the talks are free to attend. With limited space, registration is recommended. Register and view more details by visiting our Eventbrite page.

Penn Med's Health Talk Tuesdays series topics and dates


The Free Library of Philadelphia is committed to fostering lifelong learning and community engagement. Our goal for this program is to make discussion and understanding of healthcare more easily accessible. It would not have been possible without the coordination and contributions of the Penn Med team, who are passionate about the work they do and hope to share it with others. Consequently, these speaking contributions were made possible through Penn Medicine CAREs, a grant process available to Penn Med staff and the broader community. 

In addition to the program series, the Free Library of Philadelphia endeavors to make all health resources accessible. The Science and Wellness department at Parkway Central has a diverse collection of medical and health books. You can also visit our Health Explore page to find local organizations, electronic resources, reading suggestions, upcoming events, blog posts on topics related to health, and more. Another great location to check out is the South Philadelphia Library branch, also called the Community Health and Literacy Center, where additional resources allow you to take charge of your health. 

Those wanting to register for this series can contact Science and Wellness at 215-686-5394 or register on EventBrite.
