The National Women’s Checkup Day webcast will be held Monday, May 9th, 2011 at 4:00 p.m. PST / 7:00 p.m. EST on Ustream. Hosted by Monistat, Beverly Hills OB/GYN Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz will answer common women’s health questions and will also discuss the recent results from a Monistat survey.
If you have a question that you’re too embarrassed to ask your gynecologist, here’s your chance! Just send an email to email@example.com and Dr. Gilberg-Lenz just may answer it during the live webcast on National Women’s Checkup Day. You’re not alone if you’re not asking. According to Monistat’s survey, “32 percent of women are not proactively asking their gynecologist a single question about their health.”
The ninth annual National Women’s Checkup Day is the same day as the webcast, during National Women’s Health Week. This day is dedicated to promoting women to get regular checkups for the early detection of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, mental health illnesses, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and other conditions.
When you receive a screening test, such as a mammogram and Pap test, diseases are found early, when they are easier to treat. Tests and checkups can also lower the risk of health conditions. So tune into the National Women’s Checkup Day webcast hosted by Monistat (you can click on Join Crowd to get an email reminder) and take the pledge to schedule a checkup and get important screenings, learn what screenings and immunizations I need and when, and schedule at least one health screening during May 2011.
