Community Speakers

Firelands Regional Medical Center Speaker's Bureau

Today’s health concerns call for public information from reliable resources. That’s the idea behind our Speakers Bureau, which offers customized, healthcare-related programs of varied lengths and formats, directly from the topic experts.

Each year we provide presentations at no cost to local organizations, community agencies, businesses, churches, schools, and other groups. Our healthcare community speakers have knowledge in hundreds of topics, and they are ready and willing to share information with your organization.

Interested in a health care topic not listed? Call us at 419-557-7722. Most of the time, we can find community speakers to discuss your interest.


  • If possible, we request at least three weeks advanced notice. This is necessary to coordinate schedules with the physicians, clinical personnel and hospital employees.
  • We ask that you provide audio/visual equipment, for which our community speakers will only need to provide a flash drive for their PowerPoint presentation.
  • We prefer venues for which wifi is available, whenever possible.
  • There should be at least 5 audience members present from your group during the presentation.
