Rinehart Clinic launches “Care to Chat” discussion Dec. 14


On Dec. 14, Rinehart Clinic will kick off its “Care to Chat” healthcare discussions, an ongoing series covering a variety of topics and featuring healthcare providers and other staff from Rinehart Clinic and Pharmacy. The Dec. 14 chat will take place from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Manzanita Library (North Tillamook County Library), located at 571 Laneda Avenue in Manzanita.
This initial Care to Chat program will focus on handling grief during the holidays. The discussion will be guided by Rinehart Clinic’s Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Terra Marzano and Sara Todd, who view this topic as an important and often overlooked aspect of the holiday season.
“The holidays are supposed to spark joy and merriment, but for people dealing with the loss of a loved one, the holidays can be difficult to navigate,” Marzano, Rinehart Clinic’s Behavioral Health Director, said. “We do hope this discussion will help people realize they are not alone, and we will offer some tips to help everyone get through the holidays.”
The Care to Chat discussion series is free and open to everyone. Upcoming topics will include Lyme disease, colorectal cancer, medication management, and when to go to the emergency room (versus when to call your primary healthcare provider). These “chats” will be held every other month at the library in Manzanita. For information on future sessions, look for flyers around the North County area, or visit their website (rinehartclinic.org) or Facebook page (facebook.com/rinehartclinic).
