Calling All Women Bloggers!

Lexington Medical Center is sponsoring a contest from May 1st to May 31st to find additional, talented bloggers for its Every Woman Blog. Through the contest, the hospital plans to select five women from the community to be featured as permanent bloggers. Their posts will appear each month on the EveryWomanBlog.com website. The contest is open to women of all ages, and each selected blogger will receive a $250 cash prize.

The Every Woman Blog has been active for more than seven years, with more than 327,000 post views. The blog has received several awards from leading health care organizations such as the Carolinas Healthcare Public Relations and Marketing Society and the Aster Awards. Winners of the blog contest will join Shannon Boatwright, Mary Pat Baldauf, Katie Austin, Chaunte McClure, Ashley Whisonant, Jeanne Reynolds, Rachel Sircy and Stacy Thompson as featured bloggers at EveryWomanBlog.com.

“We’re looking forward to growing our exceptional team of Every Woman Bloggers,” said Lexington Medical Center Public Relations Manager Jennifer Wilson. “We know people like to read real, inspiring stories from others in their community, and we are grateful to our bloggers for their willingness to share their thoughts and experiences with our blog audience. We are lucky to have so many diverse perspectives in the community represented in this blog and we look forward to adding new voices to the mix.”

To enter the blogging contest, visit Lexington Medical Center’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/LexingtonMedical. Send a message or video about why you would be a great blogger to represent and inspire women in the Midlands. Five women with the most persuasive, funny, touching or engaging posts will be selected to become featured bloggers on the Every Woman Blog.

Each featured blogger will write at least one post per month. The topics will vary greatly depending on the personalities of the bloggers and their daily experiences in the community. Visitors can expect some of the posts to be videos. The bloggers will also meet in person at “blogger reunions” to share ideas and brainstorm topics.

The Every Woman Blog also features occasional guest bloggers from Lexington Medical Center’s medical staff. With Lexington Medical Center as the sponsor of the blog, readers can expect to find an abundance of helpful health information. For more information, visit www.EveryWomanBlog.com.

FREE Physician Lecture: Cervical Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, about 13,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer this year, and more than 4,000 women will die from the disease. Cervical cancer tends to occur in midlife, most frequently between the ages of 35 and 44. And, more than 15 percent of cases are in women over 65. However, the risk of cervical cancer decreases significantly with routine screenings.

Join Lexington Medical Center for our upcoming FREE physician lecture on cervical cancer with Andrea S. Garrick, MD, OB/GYN at Lexington Women’s Care, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice.

Dr. Garrick earned her medical degree at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Augusta University in Georgia. She has experience providing general OB/GYN services ranging from outpatient care and surgery to routine visits and complicated consultations. She practices at Lexington Women’s Care’s West Columbia location.

We hope to see you there.
