Baptist Health offered preventive health screenings to more than 500 women who gathered for Girls’ Day Out, a day of wellness for women. The one-day conference took place over the weekend and is co-presented by Baptist Health and WJCT at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Jacksonville. Women heard from local and national speakers, participated in free screenings and free chair massages. Attendees also received gift bags and door prizes from local vendors. Keynote speaker was Jennifer Berman, MD, from the Emmy® Award-winning talk show The Doctors, delivering a panel addressing pelvic health and pelvic reconstruction. Other breakout sessions included information on protecting your health, the benefits of exercise, heart health, the prevalence of diabetes, hormone therapy, recognizing the signs of a stroke and more!
