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.
