Neighborhood Health Series

health and family

Roseman University’s Neighborhood Health Series (NHS) offers monthly in-person presentations on issues related to health and well-being. These events are free and open to the public, with a complimentary meal offered.

Starting September 2024 you will be able to attend in-person at our Summerlin, NV Campus or virtually via Zoom. The Zoom link will be provided the day of the event via email to those who’ve RSVP’d. 

Each month, the Neighborhood Health Series introduces an expert speaker from Roseman University on a variety of health care topics including navigating Medicare, dealing with common diseases, and coping with an aging parent. Guests experience elements of Roseman’s Six-Point Mastery Learning Model® and are invited to get to know other attendees, all while learning alongside members of southern Nevada’s most accomplished and talented medical community.

Thank you to our 2024 Sponsor Clark County Credit Union.

Unwrapping Your DNA: What it Can Tell You About Your Heritage and Health

December 12, 2024 | 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. PT

This holiday season, turn your focus inward and consider one of the tiniest but most consequential gifts you have ever received. Packaged in your DNA are the keys to understanding your traits, heritage, and, in many cases, your health and risk of disease. Our genetics also help determine how we might respond to specific treatments and medications. Scientific advances have made discovering these items wrapped in your genetic material even easier and can be helpful as we face a world of increasing health challenges.

Presented by: Dr. David Rawlins
