MCCG Kicks Off Series of Events to Address Women's Health

“Passport to Good Health” Events Commence with Women's Health Fair 

MACON, GA (Monday, May 6, 2013) – Women's Services and The Family Birth Center, services of The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG), invite the women of central Georgia to participate in a series of events to increase personal wellness.

MCCG will host the kickoff event, the 2013 Women's Health & Maternity Fair, on Saturday, May 18 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at MCCG's Peyton Anderson Health Education Center, 877 Hemlock Street in Macon. This free event is open to the public.

In addition to health screenings, seminars on “Developing Birth Plans and Birthing Options” and “GYN Surgery Options,” as well as laughter yoga and healthy food demonstrations will be held during the health fair. Trained staff members will be onsite to check car seats for proper installation and safety.

The Women's Health & Maternity Fair is the first in a new series of events MCCG will offer to promote women's health. “Passport to Good Health” lunch and learn events will be held throughout the year, and will address issues such as tension and stress relief, breast health and weight. Events are currently scheduled for August, October and January 2014.

“I am pleased to announce this series of events. Women, for the most part, are the CEO's of their households. By emphasizing healthcare for women, we are ensuring the wellbeing of the entire family,” said Dr. Ninfa Saunders, FACHE, President and CEO of Central Georgia Health System.

To further assist women, MCCG has added a Personal Health Record document on its website. This document, along with MCCG's IQ Health program, will allow both women and men to take control of their health and their healthcare.
