Mercy's Dr. Lale to Offer Headaches Seminar

January 8, 2013

On Thursday, Jan. 24, Mercy Clinic and Dr. Ajit Lale, internal medicine physician, will offer a free lunch-and-learn seminar to address the causes and treatments of headaches and answer questions.

The seminar is scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Empson Conference Center on the lower level of Mercy Clinic Primary Care, 800 W. Laurel, Independence. A light lunch will be provided.

Dr. Lale joined Mercy Clinic in December, after completing his internal medicine residency at

Bronx Lebanon Hospital in Bronx, NY. As an internist, Dr. Lale is trained to care for a wide range of medical conditions. Along with headaches, these include congestive heart failure, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and pneumonia as well as general health care maintenance. At Mercy, he also provides palliative and hospice care and works with the  telestroke telemedicine and eICU (electronic intensive care unit) programs.

While the headaches seminar is free of charge and open to the community, reservations are required by Monday, Jan. 21, and may be made by calling the Mercy Marketing Office at 620-332-3248. More information on Dr. Lale’s practice is available by calling Mercy Clinic at 620-332-3280.
