Fresh, fun and frank discussion is promised at the women’s health presentation on Thursday, Oct. 5.

Jamestown Regional Medical Center’s What’s Normal for Women in their 20s, 30s and 40s kicks off Women’s Health month in October.  Dr. Bailey Runkles, gynecologist and obstetrician, will discuss relevant health information for women of that age group.

JRMC asks women to #RethinkPink in October. In addition to breast care, women should also take great care of their whole body, Runkles said.

“This What’s Normal event is a great opportunity for women to learn about their health in a laid-back way,” Dr. Runkles said. “Too often, women either don’t know what’s going on with their bodies or are too uncomfortable to ask. That can lead to an unpleasant health outcome. We’d like to alleviate those by offering free educational opportunities like this.”

The night will begin with a presentation, followed by an anonymous question and answer session. Topics include, but aren’t limited to: abnormal or painful periods, contraception and cervical screenings.

Light appetizers and door prizes will be provided. The event is free and open to the public.
