Women's Health - Women's Works

April 25, 2013
Women's Works Health Fair

Women often serve as caregivers for their families, putting the needs of their spouses, partners, children, and parents before their own. As a result, women's health typically takes a back seat in the list of priorities.

Adventist Medical Center is helping women understand how their bodies work and how to best care for their health this Sunday, April 28 at 1:00 pm. The event is free and provides access to women of all ages wanting to improve their health. A panel of OB/GYN’s will be on hand to answer questions regarding topics such as infertility, menstrual bleeding, breast health, incontinence, menopause and more.

Local businesses are partnering with the hospital to provide free sample products and educational information which can fuel the body and mind for a longer, healthier, happier future.

Women’s Works, is designed to enhance the well-being of women while rejuvenating the mind, body and spirit. At Adventist Medical Center, we believe we have a responsibility to help women obtain longer, healthier, happier lives. This event will empower women to make their health a priority and encourage them to take steps to improve their physical and mental health and lower their risks of certain diseases.
