Hey Ladies, Let’s Talk about Women’s Health

FOMO. What is it? The fear of missing out, and I will tell you, during a meeting recently, I had a HUGE case of FOMO.  A couple of weeks ago, I was with some coworkers and the marketing team from The Christ Hospital Health Network, talking about all of the great happenings and upcoming events at Christ, and brainstorming blog ideas. One of the subjects that came up was Let’s Talk, a quarterly event for women. Several of my coworkers had attended one of the Let’s Talk events and loved it.

They all started talking about the most recent one in February, and how amazing it was to see such a large group of women in a safe space discussing women’s issues and health without embarrassment or fear of judgement. Comments like, “Did you hear that one question about…?” or “I am so happy that she was so open about that topic because it answered a lot of questions I had about that too…” made me immediately want to learn more. I had so many questions: How do you get involved? What topics are discussed? When is the next event? I have to sign up! If you’re thinking the same thing as you’re reading this, here’s a nice Let’s Talk overview.

The events typically run from 5:30-8:00 p.m. and include cocktails and dinner by-the-bite while a panel of physicians from The Christ Hospital Health Network discuss women’s health issues and answer candid questions from attendees. Some of the topics have included hot flashes, pelvic pain, metabolic weight gain, heart, breast, bone and mental health, and ways to focus on being the best version of yourself. Let’s face it, we all want to be the best versions of ourselves! Plus, it’s totally free. The next Let’s Talk event is happening May 9, and I know I’m going to be signing up. Grab your girlfriends and do the same!
