Feel Comfortable in Your Jeans

UI Women’s Health is proud to present Feel Comfortable in Your Jeans (Genes) – the first of a new series of quarterly Girlfriend’s events. Our Girlfriend’s series will focus on women’s health and wellness opportunities designed specifically to promote the friendships and support of friendships between women. Members of our breast cancer and gynecologic cancer teams will present current information on risk factors, prevention and treatment, and conclude with a panel discussion of questions from our audience. A fashion show presented by local boutiques and women’s clothing stores featuring tips on finding the most comfortable jeans for you will add an element of fun and relaxation to the evening.

Cancer. The word alone can be scary enough, but the idea of a cancer diagnosis can be terrifying. As health care providers, we learn more about cancer every day. You can learn more about risk factors, the role of genetics, finding preventative steps to reduce risk and knowing the treatment options available.

Speakers include: David Bender, MD; Laurie Fajardo, MD; Sonia Sugg, MD
