6:30pm - 8:30pm
Join H2H and WITI for an evening with Dr. James B. Spies, expert in the treatment of uterine fibroids.
Did you know that 20-40% of women have uterine fibroid tumors? Many experience no symptoms, but those who do often suffer from heavy bleeding and pelvic pain. Traditionally, hysterectomy has been the treatment of choice.
Dr. James B. Spies, chairman of the radiology department at Georgetown University School of Medicine, offers a non-surgical alternative, embolization. Hope to Health is delighted to bring him to El Camino Hospital so he can share his expertise, enabling women to make informed health decisions.
Hope to Health, a group of the El Camino Hospital Foundation, is a committee of concerned women who believe in the power of shared philanthropy to improve the health of women in our community. Any woman making a minimum $1000 tax-deductible donation is eligible to become a voting member of H2H.
PLEASE NOTE - Dinner will not be served at this function. Dessert and coffee will follow Dr. Spies talk.
