You’re invited! Holland Hospital Women’s Event, sexual health and more


AS WOMEN, WE FACE A VARIETY OF HEALTH CONCERNS THAT ARE DIFFERENT THAN AMEND THIS THE AND A MAN’S HEALTH. ALLEN HOSPITAL HAS PUT TOGETHER A SPECIAL PROGRAMMER YOU CAN SIT AND LISTEN TO EXPERTS TALK ABOUT THESE ISSUES. TODAY I AM JOINED BY DR. BURKHOLDER WHO IS HERE TO TELL US MORE. THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. YOU HAVE A BIG EVENT WITH HELEN HOSPITAL, COMING UP VERY SOON AND IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR WOMEN TO GET MORE INFORMATION ABOUT SOME OF THOSE REALLY TOUGH QUESTIONS. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SEXUAL HEALTH ISSUES. A LOT OF WOMEN DON’T TALK ABOUT THIS BECAUSE IT CAN BE SOMEWHAT EMBARRASSING AND UNCOMFORTABLE. IT IS AN ISSUE THAT AFFECTS MANY WOMEN, AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIFE, BUT FOR SO MANY REASONS, THEY HESITATE TO BRING IT UP WITH THEIR PROVIDER. IT MIGHT BE EMBARRASSMENT, THEY MIGHT BE AFRAID THEY WILL EMBARRASS THEIR PROVIDER BUT WHAT WE KNOW IS THAT WHEN SURVEYED, MOST WOMEN STATE THAT IT IS SOMETHING THEY WANT TO TALK ABOUT ALL STOP THEY WANT THEIR PROVIDER TO BRING IT UP WITH THEM, SO WE ARE EXCITED TO BE ABLE TO BRING THIS TO WOMEN AND OUR FORUM, AND HOPEFULLY GIVE THEM SOME OF THE TOOLS TO FEEL COMFORTABLE, DOING SO. IT IS THE HELEN HOSPITAL PURELY YOU EVENT. TELL US WHAT PEOPLE CAN EXPECT BECAUSE THIS IS THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO LISTEN TO SPECIALISTS AND DOCTORS AND ANSWER SOME OF THOSE TOUGH QUESTIONS THAT MAYBE YOU WOULD NOT BE COMFORTABLE ASKING OTHERWISE. OUR GOAL IS TO ADDRESS A FEW DIFFERENT AREAS AS FAR AS WOMEN’S HEALTH GOES. ONE OF OUR PROVIDERS, THERE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT LIFESTYLE MEDICINE AND NATURALLY YOU, WE ALSO HAVE OUR BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SPECIALIST. WE HAVE ONE OF OUR PHD PSYCHOLOGIST AND A SOCIAL WORKER WHO WILL BE THERE TALKING ABOUT MINDFULLY YOU, SO LOOKING AT HELPING WOMEN TO DEAL WITH THINGS LIKE ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION AND JUST TRYING TO BE MINDFUL. I WILL BE TALKING ABOUT SEXUAL HEALTH. OBVIOUSLY YOU WILL BE THERE, SPEAKING AND YOU HAVE A LONG HISTORY IN THIS FIELD. FROM YOUR POINT OF VIEW, WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST COMMON SEXUAL HEALTH COMPLAINT FROM WOMEN? WHAT WE HERE IN OUR OFFICE IS LOW LIBIDO OR DECREASED DESIRE. THIS AFFECTS WOMEN OF ALL AGES. I HAVE YOUNG WOMEN IN THEIR 20’S, RECENTLY MARRIED WITH KIDS WHO COME IN AND THIS IS THE TOP COMPLAINT AND I HAVE POSTMENOPAUSAL WOMEN WHO MAY BE STRUGGLING WITH SIMILAR ISSUES. THIS EVENT IS FOR WOMEN OF ALL AGES, A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO GRAB A GIRLFRIEND AND IT IS ALL ABOUT POSITIVITY AS WELL. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THOSE TOUGH QUESTIONS, THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY, ALSO JUST TO HEAD OUT WITH THE GIRLFRIENDS AND LEARN MORE. WE MAKE IT A FUN NIGHT FOR THESE GIRLS TO COME OUT. THERE IS WINE, FOOD, WE ENCOURAGE WOMEN TO COME WITH THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES, NOT ONLY TO HAVE A GOOD TIME AND ENJOY EACH OTHER’S COMPANY, BUT TO LEARN SOME GREAT TIPS FOR THEIR HEALTH. NOT ONLY IS THIS GOING TO BE A GREAT NIGHT, BUT WE ARE SHOWING ON THE SCREEN WHERE PEOPLE CAN GO TO THE WEBSITE AND SUBMIT THEIR QUESTIONS. PERHAPS THEY WOULD BE EMBARRASSED TO ASK A QUESTION RIGHT THERE. THEY CAN DO SO ON THE WEBSITE AND RECEIVE SOME OF THOSE SEGMENTS EMAILED BACK TO THEM. WE ARE ENCOURAGING WOMEN TO GO ONLINE FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE EVENT, BUT ALSO TO SUBMIT THOSE QUESTIONS BECAUSE WE UNDERSTAND THEY MAY BE EMBARRASSED TO STAND UP IN FRONT OF THEIR FRIENDS AND 200 OTHER WOMEN. WE HOPE THAT THIS IS A FORUM THAT ALLOWS WOMEN TO BE HONEST AND ASK THOSE DIFFICULT QUESTIONS. IT GIVES US THE OPPORTUNITY TO EDUCATE NOT ONLY THAT WOMAN BUT ALL 200 OR MORE WOMEN WHO ARE IN ATTENDANCE. WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT FOR HELEN HOSPITAL TO PUT ON? WE KNOW YOU ARE PROVIDING CARE. THIS WAS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO BRING TO THE PUBLIC. WE TRULY BELIEVE IN WOMEN’S HEALTH FOR ALL WOMEN. THIS IS A WAY TO HIGHLIGHT OUR COMMITMENT TO OUR COMMUNITY, AS WELL AS GIVE LADIES A FUN NIGHT OUT AND A GOOD WAY TO EXPERIENCE WHAT THE HOSPITAL HAS TO OFFER. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I AM EXCITED TO BE THERE. LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. DON’T GO AWAY, MORE EIGHTWEST AFTER THIS BREAK.
