Women's health event in Atherton

Ten doctors associated with Sequoia Hospital are giving out free medical advice on a range of women's health issues at an all-day event at the Menlo Circus Club, 190 Park Lane in Atherton, on Saturday, Oct. 16.

Peninsula Urology Center of Atherton and Sequoia Hospital are cosponsoring the second annual 2010 Women's Heath Conference.

Available to the first 150 women who sign up, the conference will start at 8:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast, followed by 30-minute presentations and question-and-answer periods with each specialist. Lunch will be served. The sessions are expected to end at 3 p.m.

Internist Denise Brown will moderate the speakers who plan to talk about these topics in this order: urologist Chris Threatt, "Urinary incontinence"; internist Sean Bourke, "Why wait to lose weight?"; plastic surgeon Jane Weston, "Restoring our bodies"; cardiologist Mary Larson, "Women's and men's heart disease"; endocrinologist Sherna Madan, "Update on hormone replacement therapy"; oncologist Jelena Kao, "Breast cancer screening"; obstetrician and gynecologist Elaine Chien, "Too much bleeding? What is normal, what is not?"; urologist Dieter Bruno, "Treatments for an overactive bladder"; and psychologist Nancy Coxwell, "Sandwich generation: creating guilt-free boundaries."
