Frye Regional Medical Center will host a premier event in its Heart Center Lobby on May 20 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm as part of da Vinci Women’s Health: Small Steps. Healthier Lives., a national prevention and wellness campaign developed in partnership with leading organizations – da Vinci® Surgery, Curves®, the Office on Women’s Health, and About.com  --who have joined together on a national prevention and wellness campaign designed to encourage women to take small steps toward living healthier lives. The campaign launched April 11 with the www.smallsteps.about.com campaign Web site featuring details about the program and educational information.

Scheduled to run through May 31, da Vinci Women’s Health: Small Steps. Healthier Lives., is intended to reach thousands of women through doctor-led events that will educate about the importance of taking control of their health.

Robert Boyd, MD, Anita Montes, MD and Ryan Richardson, MD will be at the event to educate participants about preventive health measures, risks and treatment options for benign gynecologic issues, as well as help encourage woman to take charge of their health. Women who attend will also receive a 30 day free discount offer provided by Curves for participating Curves locations.

New research confirms that many women put their own health last on their lengthy to-do lists. da Vinci Women’s Health: Small Steps. Healthier Lives. was created in response to a growing problem in America, as many women living with sensitive – yet treatable – gynecologic issues too often opt for a “wait and see” approach instead of seeking out definitive relief.
