Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) March 02, 2013
Florida Hospital Tampa is elevating healthcare for women in Tampa Bay as an official “Spirit of Women” designated hospital. Through this partnership, Florida Hospital Tampa will host innovative community outreach in critical areas including heart disease, osteoporosis, breast health, cancer, menopause, sleep health, incontinence, diabetes, healthy pregnancy and more! The Spirit of Women Hospital Network is a national coalition that is committed to achieving the highest standards of women’s health.
“Our goal is to become a regional leader in women’s health while providing our community with the very best in medicine, health information and wellness education. Through our Spirit of Women partnership, we can connect with women and their families in our community and provide health education in both a fun and informative way,” said Lauren Key, Vice President of Marketing. Research shows that half of all women have never talk to their doctor about health issues occurring below the waist. That’s why Florida Hospital Tampa is offering a free three-part health series called “Half of All Women.” The series ties in fun activities like salsa lessons, and women’s finances while informing women they are not alone on common female issues, and how they can take action for their health. The series includes:
All seminars will be held at Florida Hospital Tampa, located on East Fletcher Avenue, from 6pm to 8pm. There will be food, door prizes and a chance to win a grand prize spa package. Because seating is limited, registration is required at http://www.fhtampa.org/spiritofwomen or by calling 1-877-482-4362.
“The Spirit of Women coalition seeks to inspire and empower women to take control of all aspects of their lives including physical, mental, spiritual and emotional, by embracing a holistic approach to personal and family healthcare. By joining Spirit of Women, Florida Hospital Tampa has demonstrated its commitment to be a regional and community leader in gender-sensitive healthcare and education,” said Tanya Abreu, National Program Director and President of Spirit Health Group.
