Meet the doctors of Coshocton Hospital at a women’s night out

| October 19, 2016

COSHOCTON – Women will have the opportunity to meet some of the doctors at Coshocton County Memorial Hospital during a free event, All About You, on Tuesday, Oct. 25 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at Coshocton Village Inn and Suites.

“We have so many terrific doctors and we wanted to have a way to reach out to women,” said Mary Ellen Given, director of marketing at CCMH. “Sometimes people just need a reminder that we’re always so busy taking care of other people that you need to take care of yourself. We want to make it a night where women can come out and have fun.”

There will be a variety of topics discussed, all related to women’s health. Physicians can discuss with you some symptoms of heart disease in women as symptoms often differ from those in men and steps you can take to avoid heart disease, information on the HPV virus and vaccinations to help prevent cancer, breast health, diabetes, the stages of menopause, and the treatment of varicose veins.

“It’s a fun way for us to reach out to the ladies in the community and remind them to have that mammogram and take care of themselves,” said Given. “It’s a very casual setting and it will give people the opportunity to know these physicians as people as well.”

In addition to learning about women’s health, there will also be games to play that will require you to get up and move, including a yoga session.

“We’re really trying to get people active,” said Given. “We want to make life better no matter what stage of life you’re in.”

There will also be vendors selling jewelry, nail polish, essential oils, and clothing. Refreshments will also be available. Each vendor provided a gift basket that will be given away as door prizes.

“We hope it will be a fun night for women and it wil give them the opportunity to get an understanding of what can be done here at Coshocton Hospital,” said Given.

Most of all, she hopes that women will think about their health and that the event will allow them to spend some time with friends and have fun as well.

“As women, we do have a lot of pressure on us,” said Given. “There’s a lot of thought now with your healing process. It has to do with your attitude and the friends you have to support you. That down time and spending time with friends is really vital to both your physical and mental health.”
