Keynote Session:

Celebrating Motherhood – Three Things Women Need to Know During Any Season of Motherhood

With Andrea Messel: More than a Midwife

A lot of women may hear the term midwife and think that we only deliver babies. In actuality, midwives so much more. Midwives can also perform annual well-woman exams and partner with you on your overall health and annual screenings. Even when women are done having children, getting an annual exam is an important part of caring for your overall health.

And Viviana Casas-Puig: Pelvic Health

Did you know that as many as one in three women may experience a pelvic health issue in their lifetime? Whether you are a new mom or your kids are off to college, there are a variety of factors that can affect your pelvic health. Dr. Casas will provide insights on symptoms and treatment options that can help bring back your confidence. Talking about sensitive topics is one way we can help normalize the conversation around women’s health.

And Also With Devina McCray & Catherine Hwang: Breast Health

Learn from AdventHealth physicians Drs. McCray and Hwang as they speak about the importance of the screening mammogram for breast health. AdventHealth proudly offers leading-edge breast care from providers who are dedicated to your whole-person health.
