PLYMOUTH — Thyroid problems will be the major topic of the third annual women's health event at Speare Memorial Hospital taking place on Thursday, April 4.
Wine, Women & Wisdom is the title of the event, sponsored by Hoya and Millenium Integrated Marketing, which is scheduled to get under way at 5 p.m. at the Common Man Inn in Plymouth.
Keynote speaker, Dr. Sushela S. Chaidarun, will talk about women and thyroid disease. Dr. Chaidarun is an professor in endocrinology at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Dr. Chaidarun works full-time as an outpatient endocrinologist and clinical researcher with emphasis on diabetes, thyroid and neuroendocrine problems.
“This year’s program was developed based on feedback we have received from last year’s attendees,” explains Speare’s Director of Community Relations Michele Hutchins. “First and foremost, they tell us their favorite part of the program is that it is a women-centered event. From there, they have numerous presentation suggestions. Thyroid disease came up many times, as did health issues related to the eyes and feet."
The forum will include a panel discussion on addressing and preventing health issues from a function and fashion perspective. Topics include nearsightedness and eyewear, finding the right fitting bra, and matching appropriate footwear to everyday activities.
"Our goal for the evening is to be informative and entertaining in an effort to create an open, supportive environment that creates a shared experience for all," said Hutchins.
Tickets for the event are $10 and may be purchased online at http://smhwinewomenandwisdom.
