Women go through a lot of changes during their lifetime. Some of them are unexpected and can be scary. In our hospital’s FREE physician lecture this month, Dr. Nichole McDonald will cover everything you wish you knew – but no one told you. Call you mothers, daughters and girlfriends. From puberty to menopause, Dr. McDonald will share a wealth of knowledge for women in all stages of life.
We are one month into training for the Lexington Medical Center Heart & Sole Women’s Five Miler, set for April 25 in downtown Columbia. This all-women event, with a 5-mile run, and 3- and 5-mile walks, celebrates the power of a healthy lifestyle and raises awareness about heart disease, the #1 killer of women.
