LEWISTON — “The ABCs of Identifying and Managing Stress — Just for the Health of It” will be the subject of two Central Maine Medical Center Accenting Your Health presentations set for May.

Deborah Taylor, Ph.D., Associate Program Director of the Central Maine Medical Center Family Medicine Residency, will discuss the impact of chronic unmanaged stress on health. This presentation will also identify different types of stress, symptoms of stress and “how to protect yourself from the effects of stress with an adequate set of tools and strategies to cope,” says Taylor.

In her role as a faculty member at the CMMC Family Medicine Residency Program, Taylor coordinates behavioral science educational activities and assists with administration of the residency program.

The program will be presented from 1:30 to 3 p.m. on Monday, May 9, in Chairmen’s Rooms A and B on the lower level of the 12 High St. Medical Office Building, located next to CMMC. Taylor will deliver her presentation again from 6 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 12, in Conference Room H, also on the lower level at 12 High St.

There is no cost for attending the presentation. Those interested in attending either of the programs are urged to register in advance by calling 795-8448, emailing [email protected] or registering online at www.cmmc.org. Interpreter services are available upon advance request.
