PURCHASE, N.Y. – WESTMED Practice Partners will conduct free health programs during National Women’s Health Week from May 12-18 at medical offices in White Plains, Rye, New Rochelle and Yonkers.
The programs are free, and women can attend as many events as they desire. Women can register at westmedgroup.com/events , or by calling (914) 681-5274.
“The talks are being given in order to educate women and teenage girls about early detection, prevention and basically taking better care of ourselves,’’ said Dr. Erika Krauss, a WESTMED internist. “Women, in general, are good about seeking healthcare when they aren’t feeling well, but we also want to encourage more well visits.” The presenters will be expert WESTMED specialists and primary care physicians speaking on a variety of topics ranging from how to prevent varicose veins to taking nutritional supplements and secrets to anti-aging.
WESTMED Medical Group is a large multi-specialty group medical practice, with headquarters in Purchase. It is staffed by a team of more than 250 physicians dedicated to providing coordinated, efficient, quality patient care at its nine locations in central and lower Westchester County.
