Dr. Janie L. Orrington-Myers will speak at a Dine With a Doc program set for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 24 at Senior Education Ministries, 4310 S. 11th St., Terre Haute.
The free community education program welcomes the local senior public to hear an educational topic while they enjoy a complimentary lunch.
The Dine with a Doc program was designed to allow the seniors to get out of their homes, extend their available financial resources, promote enhanced living, and educate them (from a preventative standpoint) with the goal of ensuring their quality of life and providing them with the resources and information to make an informed decision.
Guest speakers donate their time in effort to listen and answer medical questions.
Myers is a fellowship-trained, minimally invasive laparoscopic general surgeon specializing in breast surgery in Terre Haute.
Myers received her bachelor of science in chemistry from Spelman College in Atlanta, and completed her medical training at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia. She moved on to her residency in General Surgery at Loyola University Medical Center and finished at Midwestern University/St. James Hospital (now Franciscan St. James Health), both in Chicago. Afterward, Myers completed her FHS Advanced Laparoscopic Fellowship at St. Joseph Hospital in Tacoma, Washington.
Myers is board-certified in general surgery by the American Board of Osteopathic Surgery and is a Fellow of both the American College of Surgeons (2016) and the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons (2010). She is very active in industry organizations – serving as a member of the American Osteopathic Association and the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons. She is the current Chair for General Surgery and Board of Governors at ACOS, and continues to be active as a member of other ACOS national committees. Myers serves as National Faculty for the NBOME Clinical Department of Surgery. She is an engaged mentor and regularly volunteers for actives to promote wellness and medical education.
Myers’ care philosophy is that she wants patients to feel a compassionate connection, and know they will receive the same warm care she would give her own family or loved ones. Her clinical areas of interest include minimally invasive procedures, ensuring smaller incisions that result in less pain, quicker recovery, and faster return to normal activity. Expertly trained in laparoscopic and robotic techniques, she specializes in breast diseases and conditions, and has had the honor of launching robotic programs at two different facilities.
Myers has enjoyed many accolades during her career, among them America’s Most Honored Professionals Award Top 10% in 2016 and 2017, Patient Choice Recognition Awards in 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2014, and the On Time and Compassionate Doctor award in 2014. Myers is excited to be part of the Terre Haute and Regional Health community.
Myers wants patients to feel a compassionate connection, and know they will receive the same warm care she would give her own family and loved ones.
