March Educational Seminar to Discuss Overactive Bladder, Causes, and Treatments

Overactive Bladder or OAB is extremely common. 1 in 6 adults has OAB – making it more common than vision problems and diabetes. Many people think that urinary leakage is just part of getting older, but it is not.

Urology of Central Pennsylvania invites you to attend a free educational seminar about Overactive Bladder’s causes, treatment options and coverage on March 16, at the Linglestown Giant Community Center, located at 2300 Linglestown Road, in Harrisburg. Registration opens at 5:30 p.m. and the program begins at 6 p.m.

The seminar will discuss conditions, causes and symptoms of OAB and outline the variety of treatment options available. Information about which therapies are covered by Medicare and private insurers will also be shared.

RSVP for the seminar by emailing adietz@urologycp.com or by calling 717-888-9000. The event is co-sponsored by Medtronic and Urology of Central Pennsylvania and supported by the National Association for Continence.
