Relax, Refresh, Learn At Free Women's Health Expo On Oct. 17

Attention women: Focus on your own health so you can be healthy and strong for your family at a fun, informative morning retreat presented by University Hospitals Parma Medical Center. The free Women’s Health Expo, which takes place on Saturday, Oct. 17 at the Embassy Suites in Independence, is an opportunity for women to find answers to all those questions you were afraid to ask.

Learn how to manage the pressure of being a family caregiver in the sandwich generation, and how to handle the latest gynecological screening guidelines for your own health, at this event. The program runs 9 a.m. – noon, but registration, breakfast, and free health screenings start at 7:30 a.m.

Family practitioner Jennifer Wurst, MD, will present “The Big Squeeze: The Stress of Being a Sandwich Generation Caregiver” and OB/GYN Steven Galun, MD, will discuss “The ABCs of HPV, PAP, MAMM, and GYN,” just two of the many physicians sharing their expertise at this morning multi-generational gathering. Additionally, cardiologist Christine Zirafi, MD, Director of Women’s Cardiovascular Center at UH Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute, will cover the risk factors of cardiovascular disease.

Get a group of friends together and register today. Embassy Suites is located at 5800 Rockside Woods Blvd., Independence.  Call 440-743-4932 or register online at
