Free Women’s Health Seminar on May 30 at Texas Health Denton|
DENTON, Texas — Summer is almost here and who doesn’t want to look and feel their best? Now is the perfect time for women to set aside some time to focus on themselves and their health. And, to help women do just that, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton has organized a free women’s health seminar that will be held Wednesday, May 30 at 6 p.m.
Dr. Heather Bartos
It’s often been said that women make time for all the tasks in their lives at the expense of their own health and well being. Through this seminar, women can look forward to an evening of fun as well as a time for them to gather crucial information about their health.
Dr. Heather Bartos, a physician on the medical staff at Texas Health Denton, will speak about “What’s on the Shelf and Your Health.” Her presentation will address the most common vitamins and herbal supplements women use and why it’s important to tell your physician about all the medications, vitamins and supplements you are taking.
The event is the first in a series of events Texas Health will offer in collaboration with the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health. Women make about 80 percent of the health care decisions for themselves and their families and this collaboration aims to help provide women tools and evidence-based research to make those decisions.
“Texas Health Denton is committed to improving the health of the people in the communities we serve and one way we accomplish this is by helping to educate individuals about the best ways they can take control of their own health,” said Stan Morton, president of Texas Health Denton. “This collaboration is another means for Texas Health Denton to meet people in the community and to offer them useful tools to improve their health.”
The event is free and includes light refreshments, but registration is required. To register, visit TexasHealth.org/Advances or call 1-877-THR-WELL (1-877-847-9355).
