Join physicians from Rush for a free online seminar series covering women's topics that may not be easy to talk about but can significantly affect your quality of life. Learn how the risks of osteoporosis, stroke and breast cancer increase as women age, particularly as they enter perimenopause and menopause. In addition, you’ll learn how to be proactive about your health and reduce risk factors — and about available treatment options. All seminars begin at noon and include a brief presentation followed by a question-and-answer period. Sign up for one or all three.
- Tuesday, May 20: Stroke in Women: How You Can Lower Your Risk, Shawna Cutting, MD, neurologist
- Tuesday, June 3: Osteoporosis: Reducing Your Risk and Proper Nutrition, Ailda Nika, MD, rheumatologist and Kristin A. Gustashaw, MS, RD, LD, dietitian
- Tuesday, June 24: Latest Research and Treatment Options for Breast Cancer, Melody Cobleigh, MD, breast oncologist
