MAURY REGIONAL WOMEN'S CENTER OFFERS LUNCHEON SEMINAR ON WOMEN AND DEPRESSION
COLUMBIA, Tenn. – The Maury Regional Women’s Center will be hosting a free luncheon program titled Women Helping Women on Wednesday, January 14, at noon in the Auxiliary Conference Room at Maury Regional Medical Center.

Dr. Poling will discuss the signs, symptoms and treatment options for depression and conclude with a question and answer session.
Dr. Poling received his medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City, Kansas and completed a residency at the San Diego Naval Hospital Department of Psychiatry. He is board certified in psychiatry and geriatric psychiatry.
