Women’s Center Director’s Letter – November 2015

As we settle into November and the upcoming holiday season, it reminds me of how thankful I am. Thanksgiving is the day set aside for giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and this year I am thankful for so much more and hope you are too!

I’m thankful for being a cancer survivor and being able to share my journey. I’m also thankful for you! Without you – our patients and supporters – we wouldn’t be able to do what we love and that is providing women the health care they need and deserve. And last but certainly not least, I’m thankful for the outstanding health care resources available to our patients through UC Health. Advanced specialty providers- backed by academic medicine, personalized and collaborative care plans, and options for your all your health care needs whether straightforward or complex.

In addition to being thankful, I encourage you to focus on your overall health. Whether you have symptoms or not, remember that annual screenings are the best defense against disease. The earlier it’s found, the easier it is to treat. This is especially true of lung cancer. Learn about the signs and symptoms of lung cancer and how non-smokers can get lung cancer. It’s not just a smoker’s disease. Also the New Year is right around the corner and today is the best day to start your New Year’s resolutions. Read Dr. Fitch’s article to find out what you can do now to get a jump start on your weight loss goals. And lastly, it’s hard to believe but the holidays are quickly approaching! Have your started your holiday shopping? Our skin care team is ready to help. We’re offering holiday specials to help you, a family member or friend achieve healthy, glowing skin. Gift certificates are available for purchase.

As the holidays draw near, we give thanks for the opportunity and privilege of serving you and wish you a happy and healthy holiday season!
