SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 28, 2015) ― Information about women’s health, free health screenings and flu shots will be on the agenda Saturday, Nov. 7, at the Women’s Comprehensive Health Conference.
The free event, 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., will be held at the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute, 8403 Floyd Curl.
At the event, female physicians who are experts in their specialties and faculty members of the UT Health Science Center San Antonio, and other health care professionals will give presentations on a variety of health topics, including cardiology, obstetrics, gynecology, breast cancer, fertility, dermatology, behavioral health and nutrition.
“With their careers and family life, women tend to forget about themselves and their own health needs, often putting those last. The objective of this conference is to make it easy for women to learn about health topics crucial for prevention and to emphasize the importance of health screenings,” said Ildiko Agoston, M.D., director of the Women’s Comprehensive Health Institute of UT Medicine San Antonio, which is sponsoring the conference.
