TDW chapters around Texas are talking women’s health. Why? Because it is an issue that affects us all. Texas continues to ignore the need for affordable, close health care facilities for women.
Central Texas TDW had a packed house for their panel. Nurse Practitioner and TDW President-elect Tammie Hartgroves served as facilitator for their women’s health discussion.
Bell County held their women’s health panel to a similar packed house. The panel consisted of a representative from Planned Parenthood, the CEO of Hill Country Community Action Association, a Plastic & Reconstructive surgeon from Scott & White and a Surgical Oncologist specializing in breast diagnosis and treatment and breast surgery also from Scott & White.
Women’s health is one issue that crosses political lines and a good way to reach out to moderate or typically apolitical women. I know each club garnered seven new members at the health discussions. So let’s talk about women’s health and how to reach out to your community to talk about this vital issue.
