Posted: Updated:

UHS hosted a golf expo as part of the Dick's Sporting Good's Open at the En-Joie Golf Club in Endicott tonight, August 14th.

The event offered visitors assistance at exhibition tables from medical professionals, including:

-Breast Cancer



-Physical Therapy


-Primary Care


-Sports Medicine

-Stay Healthy Center


"All the people here, 3,000 or so people here, all afternoon are getting a chance to talk to our health professionals and maybe find something that they've ignored for a while in terms of health or wellness," said John Carrig, president and CEO of UHS Hospitals.

A special presentation from Jack Nicklaus, the greatest golfer of all time, called "Stories with Jack" drew in the crowds at the expo.

"So I told Mr. Nicklaus that. His bringing out so many people could very well be saving lives because people will be looking at things that maybe they've ignored for a while, so we're thrilled about having him here," said Carrig.
