On the Road with CCRstudies

Monday, March 11th, 2019

Coastal Connecticut Research has been busy in the past few weeks as part of the CCRstudies speaker series.  In March we traveled to the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center where Dr. Robert M.  Spitz, our medical director and a primary investigator, discussed the important role women have played in clinical research studies and gave an overview of some of the studies we have conducted at our site. Dr. Spitz also addressed a large group at Waterford Senior Services on the condition of Overactive Bladder,  including signs and symptoms of OAB.  He highlighted some of the products evaluated at our site as part of OAB clinical research trials.  There we some great questions from the group and the event was followed up by a podcast recording on Overactive Bladder for the Waterford Senior Buzz with Kathy Pierce, assistant director for Waterford Senior Services.  Call to learn more about how your organization or group can be a part of the CCRstudies Speaker Series. Call (860) 443-4567 or email MaryLou Gannotti at marylou@ccrstudies.com.  Here’s a highlight from the OAB event:

Speaker Series

Dr. Robert M. Spitz addresses a group regarding OAB

 

How do I know if I have an overactive bladder?  What is an overactive bladder?  Is an overactive bladder a healthy bladder?  These questions and others were addressed recently as part of the CCRstudies speaker series.  Our inaugural event featuring Dr. Robert M. Spitz as our speaker was held at Shoreline Physical Therapy in East Lyme, Connecticut.  Dr. Robert Spitz, primary investigator of our current OAB research study and Medical Director of Coastal Connecticut Research, discussed OAB, urinary urgency and incontinence issues at a lunch and learn held in early December.  Those in attendance, both women and some men, came with questions and were seeking to be better informed about this condition.  Joanne Moore, PT and proprietor of Shoreline Physical Therapy also addressed some techniques to address OAB regarding biofeedback and physical therapy.  The event provided some vital information to those in attendance. Thanks to Joanne Moore for her hospitality and to those who attended this event!
