MUARY REGIONAL WOMEN'S CENTER HOSTS FREE LUNCHEON FOR WOMEN
COLUMBIA, Tenn. – The Maury Regional Hospital Women’s Center will be hosting a free luncheon program titled Women Helping Women on Wednesday, February 20, at 12:00 p.m. in the Auxiliary Conference Room at Maury Regional Hospital.
Dr. Amit Choksi, a gastroenterologist on the medical
staff at Maury Regional Hospital, will discuss colorectal
cancer. He will address the recommended screenings as
well as the signs, symptoms and treatment options for
those faced with this disease.
Colorectal cancer affects an equal number of women and men each year and is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Colorectal cancer is often referred to as a silent disease since the symptoms don’t always develop until it is advanced and difficult to cure. The good news is that there are ways to prevent colorectal cancer, and it is curable when it is found early through regular screening exams.
The public is invited to attend this event. Lunch will be provided. Reservations must be made by calling 931.490.7123.
Women Helping Women is a free quarterly lunch and learn series that addresses health issues facing women today.
