Davidson County Department of Senior Services Senior Dynamics program in partnership with Novant Health Thomasville Medical Center will host a free educational class, Ask Me Three™.  This class will be offered from 9:45-10:45 a.m. May 13 at the Lexington Senior Center, located at 555-B W. Center Street Ext.

   Davidson County residents 55 and older are invited to attend.  The program will be presented by Tom Doyle, Cardiac & Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program Manager of Thomasville Medical Center.  Preregistration is required by May 12.

   Partnership for Clear Health Communication developed the Ask Me Three™ program as a solution to assist patients in receiving health information in a way they can use or understand. Research shows that patients are reluctant to ask questions.  Novant Health has implemented a variation of Ask Me Three™ in which clinicians and providers use these three questions as the framework of the clinical conversation.  If a patient does not understand his or her illness, how medications need to be taken, or why they are important, the treatment battle is lost and patients are unknowingly placed in harm's way.  Ask Me Three™ provides great information for everyone to know before heading to the doctor.

   If you would like to attend the class and learn more about Ask Me Three™, please call 242-2290 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
