Just Between Women—Women’s health issues presented

From press release

NorthPointe Health and Wellness will host an educational seminar for women from 7-8 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 3, at 5605 Rockton Road, near the southwest corner of East Rockton and Willowbrook roads.

Drs. Christel Tecarro, Family Practice, and Annabelle Tolentino, Internal Medicine, will cover women’s health issues such as menopause, osteoporosis and heart disease.

There is a direct relationship between the lack of estrogen during menopause and the development of osteoporosis. With menopause also comes a greater chance of heart disease, which is the No. 1 cause of death for U.S. women. Of course, heart and bone health is important throughout a woman’s life, but menopause means it is time to step up and get serious about these important issues.

Come to this informal presentation and discussion in NorthPointe’s Community Education Room about what you can do to help yourself in this important stage of life. For more information, call (815) 525-4500.

From the October 28 – November 3, 2009
