St. Luke's to Host Women's Health Night

Updated: October 09, 2019 09:51 AM

Monday marked the start of St. Luke's Women's Health Week.  They're honoring the week with a night dedicated to women's health where they're covering everything from cardiovascular health to domestic violence and more.


"We have seven experts in different type aspects of medicine that are all crucial to women's health, who are all going to come and give a mini-lecture, so just 15 minutes or so with information for people to attend," Dr. Jennifer Witt, a St. Luke's Surgical Associate, said. 

There will also be booths with additional information and fun games too.  Dr. Witt said they're putting it one because it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

"We wanted to make sure that everyone knew that, knew to get out there and get their mamos, had some new information about who to screen, how to screen, patients with high-risk, all that sort of thing," Dr. Witt. 

It's also Domestic Violence Awareness month. 

"We decided that maybe just in general October should be women's health awareness time," Dr. Witt.

The event is geared toward all women and Dr. Witt says there's something for everyone.  It's also free.

"All of the different topics of information are going to apply to pretty much everyone that could be there," Dr. Witt said.

They're also hosting a ribbon cutting for the St. Luke's Comprehensive Breast Program.

"The Comprehensive Breast Program at St. Luke's is a program that ties in a whole selection of experts in breast health and breast care in a comprehensive way," Dr. Witt said.  "Our goal is to expedite anybody that has any sort of a breast concern."

Women's Health Night is Wedneady, October 9th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at St. Luke's Auditorium.  Click here for more info.
