Renown Health, da Vinci Surgery, Curves, the Office on Women’s Health and About.com have joined together on a national prevention and wellness campaign designed to encourage women to take small steps toward living healthier lives. The campaign, “da Vinci Women’s Health: Small Steps, Healthier Lives,” launched April 11 with the www.smallsteps.about.com campaign Web site featuring details about the program and educational information.
“Recent research confirms that many women put their own health last on their lengthy to-do lists,” said Dr. Elizabeth Hutson, da Vinci surgeon for Reno Gynecology. “There is a growing problem in America. Many women living with sensitive – yet treatable – gynecologic issues too often opt for a ‘wait and see’ approach instead of seeking out definitive relief.”
Scheduled to run through May 31, “da Vinci Women’s Health: Small Steps, Healthier Lives,” is intended to reach thousands of women through doctor-led events that will educate participants about preventive health, risks and treatment options for benign gynecologic issues, as well as help encourage woman to make annual exams. Women who attend will receive a 30-day free discount coupon at participating Curves locations.
