The Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation and the team at the Lois Hole Hospital for Women are hosting a unique event called You Go Girl on Saturday June 22, 2013 in the Robbins Learning Centre at the Lois Hole Hospital for Women.
As women age they often face a number of health challenges, many of which relate to their pelvic floor. Incontinence can be an unfortunate reality for a growing number of women, who may feel isolated and embarrassed and are hesitant to seek medical advice.
The Lois Hole Hospital for Women is a national leader in the treatment of incontinence and other pelvic floor conditions. A friendly team of urogynecologists, nurse continence advisors, physiotherapists and dieticians, can assess a woman's individual needs and come up with a plan to best suit a woman's condition. It is important for women to know that there is help and hope when you're dealing with pelvic floor disorders.
You Go Girl will be an empowering, informative and uplifting morning to take control of your health and find the answers you need in a fun and supportive environment. The morning will consist of a gentle yoga class with a focus on pelvic health exercises, followed by a continental breakfast. From there, guests will attend several presentations led by the pelvic health experts from the Lois Hole Hospital for Women, including one of the preeminent voices on incontinence, Urogynecologist Dr. Jane Schulz. A question and answer period will follow and the morning will conclude shortly thereafter.
The Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation is fundraising for the purchase of a dedicated women's health da Vinci Robotic Surgical System at the Lois Hole Hospital for Women. This will be the first robot specifically for women's health in Canada.
