July Women’s Center Director’s Letter

Just by virtue of being women, we’re more vulnerable to certain health conditions. In fact, there’s a whole host of health issues that are common to both men and women, but impact each in different ways. That’s why it’s so important to have a physician who understands the unique health needs of women.

In this month’s newsletter, our specialists discuss female cancers and why it’s important to be aware of them and what you can do to prevent them or detect them early and the common pain of headaches and what types of headaches you may often suffer with. We also discuss reviving the vaginal hysterectomy – why some surgeons prefer the vaginal approach versus the new laparoscopic techniques and how menopause may be the reason you can’t sleep.

Finally, I thought it would be fun for you to get to know me a little better. Check out the full-page spread where I reveal some personal information about myself that you probably didn’t know. And I encourage you and others to donate to support the Catherine Geering Community & Provider Educational Sexual Health Lectureship. My goal is to raise $10,000 by Sept. 1, 2015. I will personally match any donation up to $5,000. To donate, visit uchealth.kintera.org/CatherineGeeringLecture2016.
