Do you fall asleep at night dreaming of a community laboratory to design and build high impact, creative social services and programs for the aging population? Do you have ideas about how to leverage community assets as a method itself for enhancing social engagement, mental acuity, and physical fitness among older citizens? Do you think of volunteerism as a central program pillar to improve services, programs and outcomes? If so, we want to meet you . . .
An Afternoon Social Focusing on Good Health
By Mary Procter
National Women’s Health Week will be observed May 10-16, and to help celebrate, MedStar Washington Hospital Center is hosting women from Capitol Hill Village on May 11 for an afternoon social and presentations on women’s health.
The event will be from 3:00-6:00 pm Transportation will be provided from Capitol Hill to the MedStar Washington Hospital Center by International Limousine Shuttle (courtesy of the hospital). As we enjoy wine and cheese, MedStar experts will fill us in on three important topics, and there will be time for questions and answers.
Women’s Cardiology Issues will be the first topic—something that is beginning to receive a great deal of attention. More women than men die of heart disease and stroke, but they get less medical attention because women’s symptoms of cardiovascular trouble are different and less easily diagnosed than men’s. We will learn what we need to know to be properly cared for.
The second topic, Women’s Urogynecology Health, will help us understand the post-menopausal changes in our bodies and the kind of medication, exercises, and sometimes surgery that will keep female bodies functioning best.
The third topic will be the latest on how Exercise and Nutrition can increase well-being and help prevent disease and disability.
This event is for CHV members and their guests. Sign up by 3:00 pm, Wednesday, May 6, by contacting the Village office at 202-543-1778 or at firstname.lastname@example.org, and inform them if you plan to take the shuttle to the MedStar Washington Hospital Center.
