Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Launches Girl Talk Women’s Health Series.

Dr. Woodworth and Dr. Date speak about breast health at the first Girl Talk

In June, Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital launched Girl Talk, a women’s health series designed to connect women with medical experts at Henry Mayo in a social and informative environment.

The first Girl Talk focused on breast health and featured Henry Mayo and University of Southern California breast surgeon Amanda Woodworth, MD, and lead radiologist at the Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center Anajli Date, MD. Community members enjoyed appetizers and beverages while submitting questions to the physicians anonymously.

“We’re pleased the first Girl Talk was so successful. Attendees were grateful for the opportunity to get their breast health questions answered in a fun, relaxed environment. We look forward to presenting new Girl Talk events in the coming months.” said Adrienne Thompson, Henry Mayo community events coordinator at Henry Mayo.

More than 50 women attended the first Girl Talk event. Some topics discussed included how to efficiently administer self-breast exams, when to begin scheduling annual mammograms, how to screen for breast cancer with implants, and what steps to take if you’re considered high-risk for breast cancer.
