BayCare Health System Celebrates Month of the Woman and Invites You to Embrace Your Health

CLEARWATER, Fla., April 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- BayCare Health System, a leading health care provider in the Tampa Bay area, is hosting a series of events to celebrate the Month of the Woman.

As moms, caregivers and professionals, women often sacrifice their own needs to care for others. BayCare initiated the Month of the Woman to encourage women to re-focus on themselves. This month-long series offers a variety of lectures, screenings and workshops specifically designed for today's woman.

The Month of the Woman event series was created to address the health needs of all women from menstruation to maternity and menopause. The series includes topics such as: gynecologic issues, breast health, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, diet, sleep habits, plastic surgery, incontinence, self awareness and general wellness.  

It's time to focus on you, so carve out some time for yourself in May and attend one of BayCare's many convenient women's health information sessions offered throughout Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties.
