Eastside Medical Center October 24, 2017

Eastside Medical Center is celebrating 20 years of behavioral health services with a community open house on Thursday, October 26th, at their South Campus hospital located at 2160 Fountain Drive in Snellville, Georgia. The open house will take place from 5 to 7 p.m.

Attendees will hear from Eastside Medical Center’s Chief Executive Officer, Trent Lind, and Vice President of Behavioral Health, Margaret Collier. The team will celebrate the past and share their vision for the future of behavioral health services at Eastside Medical Center. Community members will have the chance to meet Eastside’s behavioral health physician team that has provided superior patient care and assisted in building this state-of-the-art program over the years. Physicians include Dr. Jae Pak, Dr. Muhammad Ahmed, Dr. Joshua Morris, Dr. Russel Wagner, and Dr. Jay Weinstein.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in virtual dementia and schizophrenia simulations. These virtual reality simulations were created for families, organizations, and companies seeking to better understand the physical and mental challenges of those suffering from dementia or schizophrenia. This unique interactive program has shown to improve communication and care. The goal of this simulation is to learn to create a positive environment for those with dementia and schizophrenia by building a deeper understanding what it is like to walk in the shoes of someone who suffers from these conditions.
