Events and Activities



In this issue of Compass, we examine three healthcare issues to help you make positive changes for yourself and your loved ones. 

Medical experts agree that energy drinks pose a significant health risk despite being incredibly popular. Charles Walcott, MD, explains that risk and how parents can talk with their children about these drinks. 

There are just some things that people don’t want to talk about, even with their doctor. Steven Benaderet, MD, warns that keeping certain issues from your doctor because you’re embarrassed may be detrimental to your health. He offers tips for having an honest talk with your provider.

Dementia affects tens of thousands of Connecticut families. Vivian Argento, MD, sheds light on dementia and how patients and families can combat the disease.

You can make changes – big or small -- to improve your health. Our providers and experts remain dedicated to helping make those changes permanent.
