County Commission to Hold Women’s Health Seminar

The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders will sponsor a halfday seminar on women’s health Saturday, October 24, on behalf of the county’s Commission on the Status of Women. The seminar will run from 8: 30 a. m. to 12: 30 p. m. and is free.

“This is a great opportunity for women of all ages to learn more about their bodies, and about the changes in our bodies and our lives as we grow older,” said Freeholder Mary P. Ruotolo, the board’s Liaison to the Commission on the Status of Women. “This will be informative for women of all ages, and we encourage mothers to bring their daughters to this seminar.”

Entitled “The Times of Her Life,” this seminar will focus on

the many medical and physical issues and changes women confront at various stages of their lives. Among the topics experts will address are adolescence, menopause, childbirth and aging.

Physicians, a gynecologist, nutritionist, mental health providers, a nurse/ midwife, plastic surgeon and radiologist will speak and field questions on many issues, including the changes that occur throughout the lives of women.

Part of the cost of this event will be underwritten by ScheringPlough Corp., of Kenilworth. Sponsorship by the company and the Board of Chosen Freeholders means that this seminar can be provided to women at no charge.

“By providing this seminar at no charge, we hope that women and teens from across the county will be able to attend this events,” said Carolyn Vollero, Chairwoman of the commission.

A free breakfast also will be provided to all participants.
