Knowing the signs of women’s reproductive cancers, and staying on top of routine cancer screenings and knowing when it’s time to get them, can be overwhelming and intimidating.
To promote education and awareness, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health (D-HH) will host a live webinar on Monday, October 25, titled “Women’s Reproductive Cancers: An Overview of Cervical, Ovarian and Uterine Cancers,” featuring Ivy Wilkinson-Ryan, MD, a gynecologic oncologist at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
Topics addressed in this webinar will include:
- Risk factors and prevention methods
- How to talk to your healthcare provider about your concerns
- Available screening tests and current treatment options
“Many reproductive cancers in women can be prevented or treated with proper preventative care and understanding risk factors and symptoms,” Wilkinson-Ryan said. “With this webinar, I hope to help women feel more empowered to take charge of their health and to have open, productive conversations with their healthcare providers.”
The webinar will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. and is free of charge. Participants will be able to submit questions in advance for Wilkinson-Ryan. To register, visit https://events.dartmouth-hitchcock.org/event/hlswomenscancers/.
