Denton Event, Website Designed to Help Women Monitor their Health|
DENTON, Texas — We all know that women tend to put themselves last on the to-do list.
The average woman’s to-do list could look something like this:
With all that activity, it can be really easy for a woman to ignore her own well-being. That’s why Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton is hosting "The Multi-Tasking Woman."
Dr. Anna Burke, an internal medicine physician on the medical staff at Texas Health Denton, will speak about breast health and offer tips for how women can regain control of their health. The event is being held in conjunction with the Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health.
The seminar will be held in the Rio Grande Room at Texas Health Denton Mon., Oct. 15 at 6 p.m. The event is free but registration is required by calling 1-877-THR-WELL or visiting www.TexasHealth.org/Advances.
If you can’t break away, Texas Health has created online resources as well. With a few clicks of the mouse at TexasHealth.org/Women, busy women can get a barometer of their own health.
The site is divided into age categories, so women see only the tests and conditions most appropriate to their life stage. Many of the quizzes, such as questions about healthy eating and thyroid function, take less than two minutes with the longest one, the overall women’s health assessment, easy to complete in less than 10 minutes.
The site also includes a breast cancer risk assessment tool. And the results are easy to print and take to your physician to discuss any concerns more in-depth.
"It’s so easy for women to put their health needs behind those of their families," said Dr. Burke. "But because everyone is so dependent on them, it’s even more important to take the time to care for your own health and well-being. Texas Health is excited to offer tools that make taking care of yourself easy to achieve."
