In celebration of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Lima Memorial Health System will host the 21st Annual Hope Garden Ceremony on Thursday, October 19. Breast cancer survivors, family and friends are invited to gather at the Lima Memorial Medical Park on Eastown Road at noon for this celebration of life and survivorship.
While midwives are well known for attending births, they also provide health care to women, including annual exams, writing prescriptions, basic nutrition counseling, parenting education, patient education and reproductive health visits. A hallmark of midwifery is health promotion and disease prevention. Midwives work closely with physician specialists, using the model of consultation, collaboration and referral as needed to provide optimal health care.
Please join us on September 28 at 6 p.m. for the second annual Breast Cancer Awareness Coalition Symposium in the Lima Memorial Health System Auxiliary Conference Center. Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. Attendees will learn about a variety of essential topics regarding breast health from local cancer care specialists, including Darlene Weyer, D.O. Radiologist and Medical Director of the Lima Memorial Women’s Health Center, a community and nationwide leader in breast cancer prevention.
