AITKIN - A relaxing atmosphere, samplings of hors d'oeuvres and wine tasting are all lures to attract those who want to learn more about women's health issues.

Join Riverwood Healthcare for an informative and entertaining evening to celebrate women's wellness from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. May 14 at the Butler Building in downtown Aitkin.

The speakers for this program on core health issues for women include Dr. Rachel Cady and Dr. Christina Kramer, obstetrician/gynecology specialists, on pelvic health; Dr. Tim LeMieur, general surgeon, on digestive and colon health; and Dr. Tim Dirks, cardiologist, on women's heart health. Following the three presentations, Riverwood Nurse Midwife Megan Workman will moderate a question and answer discussion with the audience and panel of speakers.

"As a working mother, I know busy schedules and lifestyles often keep women from devoting time and attention to health matters," said Cady, an obstetrician and gynecology specialist who will speak on pelvic health issues at the event. "Balancing work, family and other priorities is difficult enough without health problems to slow you down. As a woman, your body depends on a healthy core - a strong heart, a smooth digestive system and a well-functioning pelvic system to keep you going at the pace you enjoy."

In addition to three talks focused on women's health, visit information booths on ask the doctor, breast health, nutrition, heart health, colon health and more. Adding to the fun will be drawings for door prizes and a photo booth for capturing group and individual shots.

I invite you to gather again for an evening devoted to women's wellness, sharing and learning valuable health information while relaxing with good food and wine."

The cost for this event is $10 and payment will be collected at the event. Registration is required and requested by May 8. RSVP to Riverwood's events line at 218-927-5188 or healthyliving@riverwoodhealthcare.org
