Gynecologist and obstetrician Michael McCoy, M.D., will discuss hormone
therapy for treating symptoms of menopause. The third program in the 10-month
Red Hot Mamas series is scheduled at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 30, in
the Blackhawk Room on the lower level of Mercy Plaza, 1225 S. Gear Ave.,
Menopause affects women differently, so treatment should vary, too. Besides
relieving symptoms, hormone therapy can reduce the risks of heart attack,
colon cancer and fractures. But this type of treatment is not right for
every woman. Dr. McCoy will explain the benefits and risks of using hormone
therapy and provide information on other FDA-approved treatments.
A light supper and door prizes will be available at the free program. Reservations
are requested. Please call (319) 768-4070.
