Talking Women's Health at Ladies Night Out
St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center hosted its second annual Ladies Night Out on Wednesday, June 11, 2014 at the Upsky Long Island Hotel in Hauppauge. The evening was moderated by Dara Brener, MD, internist and staff physician at St. Catherine. Also in attendance to welcome the “ladies” was St. Catherine’s Vice President of Medical Staff Affairs and Chief Medical Officer Jason Golbin, DO.
Ladies Night Out is an outgrowth of St. Catherine’s Community Outreach Program, Welcome to Wellness—a free informative health lecture series. The free event consisted of a multidisciplinary panel of expert physicians who discussed common issues and advances in women’s health, including Deborah Blenner, MD (internal medicine), Frank Bonura, MD (gynecology), Dara Brener, MD (internal medicine), Manal Hegazy, MD (gynecology), June Lee, MD (breast surgery); Sultan Mohiuddin, MD (vein treament), Brendan O’Donnell (obstetrics and gynecology) and Diana Yoon-Schwartz, MD (plastic and reconstructive surgery). Attendees had the unique opportunity to ask the panelists questions about women’s health issues.
Jennifer Giantomaso of Northport commented, "Ladies Night Out was so much more than I expected. I have been given so much useful information. I am so happy I came and look forward to coming again next year."
Thanks to raffles sponsors, New York Sports Club, Upsky Long Island Hotel, New Street Plastic Surgery, H2O Restaurant and Living Well Medical Spa, attendees were also entered into free raffle drawings. Mother and daughter, Cassandra and Marlene Loiseau were just two of the lucky winners.
