At the upcoming Sept. 24, Ladies Night Out program, the topic will be cervical health and ovarian cancer. Guest speakers will be Dr. Carole Peterson and Dr. Ladson Gaddy-Dubac. Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When found in its early stages, treatment is more likely to be successful.
Ladies Night Out is a partnership between Macon County Public Health and Angel Medical Center (AMC) to provide free monthly programs on a variety of health topics for women with an emphasis on the importance of regular health screenings. The Franklin Bi-Lo and Fatz of Franklin are corporate sponsors of the programs and provide snacks and door prizes each month. Dodge Packaging Specialties, Inc. provides paper products and Indian Hills Spring Water provides bottled water.
This program will be held two times on this date in the cafeteria at AMC. One will be at 4 p.m. and the other at 6:30 p.m. The same presentation will be given at both meetings. All women are invited to attend one of these meetings and are asked to encourage all the women in their life, who are over the age of 13 years, to attend with them.
