Scott Memorial Hospital is once again delighted to be hosting the popular Women’s Health Night. The event will take place on Monday, November 6th, from 6-830 pm at the hospital. One of the main focuses of the event this year will be to offer information and ways to help fight the three leading killers of women! Heart disease, Cancer, and Stroke are considered the leading killers of women.

This event promises to provide vital information that is crucial in order to fight these leading killers. There is critical information we can educate our community with in order to save lives. The staff is excited to have Rebecca Roth, RN, and Maggie Turner, local health professionals, to help deliver an informative yet easy to understand presentation that will help us in the fight against these leading killers in our community. The whole mission of the hospital is to make the community healthier. Our community is facing several challenges at this time and it is important that we stay strong to overcome these adversities. Educating the women in the community translates into education of the entire family, thus the community. One goal of this evening is to strengthen our community through knowledge. “If you know better, you can do better, stated Hope White, Event Organizer.

The staff of the Obstetrics department will also be available to share information with attendees on services and classes that are offered in their department.
