"Endometriosis: Separating Fact From Fiction"

Topic of Upcoming Lunch and Learn For Your Health Lecture

Lesli G. McQuigg, WHNP-BCMarch 20, 2018 – In observance of Endometriosis Awareness Month, Southeast Georgia Health System aims to raise awareness of a disease that affects approximately 176 million women worldwide. Endometriosis occurs when the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus, grows outside the uterus. It is a leading cause of infertility and chronic pelvic pain. In addition, it has also been linked to other health concerns, including certain autoimmune diseases, fibroids, painful bladder syndrome and even certain cancers.

To better understand this disease, join us on Wednesday, March 28, as Lesli G. McQuigg, WHNP-BC, with Southeast Georgia Physician Associates-Obstetrics & Gynecology, presents “Endometriosis: Separating Fact From Fiction.” The presentation will offer important information on diagnosing endometriosis, managing symptoms, treatment options and more.

The Lunch and Learn For Your Health lecture will be held at the Golden Isles YMCA from 12 to 1 p.m., and lunch will be provided by Wrap Happy at no charge to attendees. A YMCA membership is not required to attend; the Lunch and Learn is open to the public.

The Lunch and Learn For Your Health series takes place at the Golden Isles YMCA located at 144 Scranton Connector, Brunswick. Seating is limited and pre-registration is required by calling the YMCA at 912-265-4100
