CCRstudies Speaker Series

Thanks to the East Lyme Senior Center and thanks all those who attended a discussion on Overactive Bladder (OAB) at the center.  Dr. Robert M. Spitz shared information on the condition of OAB and discussed clinical research trials for OAB for which he has served as primary investigator.

Part of the discussion focused on the fact an overactive bladder is not necessarily an “unhealthy” bladder.  Rather, it’s a bladder that is not receiving the correct signals!  Questions posed to the doctor included “why do I wake up with a soaking wet pad?” “Is drinking wine affecting my need to urinate?” and “how do treatments for other conditions impact my overactive bladder?”

We look forward to continuing the CCRstudies Speaker Series in February at the Norwich Inn and Spa where Dr. Spitz will discuss the important role women play in clinical research trials. The event takes place on February 13th at 6pm as part of the “Time for Me” Wednesday Wellness Series.
