Through the generations, women have not always been eager to share intimate health details or to ask the difficult questions. To make it easy for women in the community to learn more about “What Your Mama Never Told You,” the McKenzie Health System Foundation Community Relations Committee will once again host this free event with local health experts. This year’s event will take place at 6:00 p.m. on July 25 at Blue Water Sports Bar & Grill, 8 N. Ridge Street in Port Sanilac.
This year’s panel, which includes Nurse Practitioner Suzette Walker of McKenzie Health and Wellness Center in Sandusky, Nurse Practitioner Brandy Trepkowski of McKenzie Rural Health Clinic in Sandusky, and Nicole Beagle of Sanilac County Community Mental Health, will discuss common questions and issues around topics including hot flashes, postpartum depression, weight gain, birth control and more. The emcees, Lorie Freiburger and Erin Freiburger, will pull out anonymous questions throughout the event to pose to the panel.
“If you attended last year’s event, you know attendees will walk away with helpful information and will laugh a great deal while they learn,” said Therese Stone, Chair of the Women’s Event subcommittee. “Not everyone has a parent or teacher who shares the nitty-gritty and important details when it comes to women’s health, so we wanted to create an event where every topic was fair game and our panel is ready and willing to answer all of your questions!”
The event includes free appetizers, prize drawings, and a cash bar. Registration is not required. For more information about the event, please contact the McKenzie Health System Foundation Office at 810-648-6127 or visit www.mckenziehealth.org.
