Lunch and Learn with Mitzie-Ann Davis, MD
September 17 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month and Mitzie-Ann Davis, M.D., MPH, FACOG, a gynecologic oncologist at Piedmont Fayette Hospital, will address awareness of the different types of gynecological cancers, their symptoms, and treatment options at a free, virtual event, “Login, Lunch and Learn: What Every Woman Needs to Know” on Thursday, Sept. 17.
The American Sexual Health Association estimates that 98,000 women will be diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer this year. Many gynecologic cancers share symptoms and some can’t be detected by a screening. The best way to empower women to protect themselves from these types of cancers is to provide education.
“The earlier that cancer can be diagnosed and treated, the better the chance for successful treatment,” said Dr. Davis. “Women should be in tune with their bodies so that they can spot changes, and they should continue to get regular physicals and gynecological examinations.”
The virtual event will take place from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 17. A question and answer period with Dr. Davis will follow the presentation. To reserve your spot, send an email to PFHRSVP@piedmont.org
