OSWEGO, NY – The influential thyroid will be the topic of the next Oswego Health Ask The Doctor presentation.
Endocrinologist Francis Clifford Arce, MD, will discuss thyroid disorder management and disease at 6 p.m. November 14 in the JPC conference room of the Oswego Health Services Center, which is adjacent to Oswego Hospital.

He completed his residency at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where he was chief resident.
Dr. Arce fulfilled a fellowship at the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, also at Stony Brook.
