Dr. Giurgius Speaks at West Plains Elementary

Board Certified General Surgeon Dr. Magdy F. Giurgius, recently spoke to fourth grade students at West Plains Elementary School about nutrition. Dr. Giurgius began practicing at Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Surgical Specialists Clinic in September of 2015. Speaking to fourth grade classes was something that he started doing when his son was in fourth grade in Columbia, Mo., and he is continuing that here in West Plains. “Educating the kids how to eat well and teaching them correct things about nutrition is something I consider very important and when children go home they will convey a positive message about healthy nutrition to their parents as well,” Dr. Giurgius said. Topics included an overview of the gastrointestinal system, calorie count, GI disorders, the drawbacks of malnutrition, and general nutrition guidelines. The OMC Surgical Specialists Clinic is located at 2600 Independence Square in West Plains. To arrange for Dr. Giurgius to speak, contact OMC Public Relations Department at 417-257-6737.
