Elizabethtown Community Hospital

Elizabethtown Community Hospital

— Elizabethtown Community Hospital is hosting Women’s Health Night on Wednesday, Oct. 16, from 4 to 6 p.m. in its lobby and boardroom areas.

This free event is hosted by both the hospital auxiliary and radiology department. It is open to the public and includes speakers, osteoporosis screening, health-related information, body mass index assessment, and blood pressure check.

The night’s featured speaker, Gynecologist Lynne Macco, will be offering information about changes that women can expect as they approach menopause. Macco will explain the physiological changes and options for alleviating physical symptoms so that women will have a clear understanding of what’s best for their particular situation. She will also be able to offer information about acupuncture as a treatment option for a number of issues including migraine, pelvic pain, incontinence, eczema, and more.

Women may be eligible for a free mammogram through the Cancer Services Screening Program and are encouraged to make an appointment by calling 873-3520. Clinical breast exams will be performed by a physician assistant; it’s a great opportunity for participants to ask questions about performing the exam at home.

Call the hospital’s community relations office for additional information at 873-3003.
