The always-popular Girls Night Ought program shifted its focus to “Women and Cancer” this past August 17, providing information on the disease to 109 people registered attendees. 58 HPV questionnaires/evaluations were returned on the evening with the majority finding the information beneficial.

The event took place at the EJGH Crawford Center and put physicians and other experts in the field in front of a group of women during an open forum. Informative panels are also available for more questions following the opening presentations.

Presented by EJGH Division of Dermatology and Oncology Nurses, the American Academy of Dermatology and the Christopher Guillot Memorial, the annual Skin Cancer screening successfully screened 66 patients on May 13, 2017 in the EJGH Crawford Conference Center.

Of the 66 checked at absolutely no cost, there were 254 findings and three cases of basal cell carcinomas.

Participants were referred back to their personal physician, to one of the dermatologists who working at the screening event, or given Health Finder telephone number to find dermatologist in their insurance plan.
