A New Prevention and Health Promotion Program for Women
from the VA Palo Alto Women's Health Center
In early spring 2011, the VA Palo Alto Women's Health Center will launch an exciting new program called the Women's Wellness Workshop. The Women's Wellness Workshop will take a "whole-body," collaborative, health-promoting approach to treatment, with the goals of improving patients' overall health and creating a sense of community among women Veterans.
More general medical topics such as weight control, stress reduction and blood pressure will be covered. The format of the workshop sessions will emphasize interaction and discussion between health care providers and Veterans rather than lectures alone. In addition, the providers leading the sessions will be from all disciplines of the medical field, including pharmacists, dieticians, psychologists and physicians, so that you are provided with comprehensive information on how to improve your health.
Since this workshop is interactive and depends on the participation of female Veterans like you, we encourage you to join us!
If you are interested in participating, please contact Dr. Beth Manning, women’s health psychologist, at 650-493-5000 x66986.
