FCMH to host first ‘Healthy University’ talk


Fayette County Memorial Hospital (FCMH) has partnered with the Fayette County Health District to introduce “Healthy University,” an educational series that will be offered bi-monthly.

The first educational talk in the series is “Womanhood, Preparing You and Your Daughter for Life Changes,” a modern day mother/daughter tea. This will be held this evening from 6-8 p.m. in Medical Arts Building 2 Conference Room at FCMH. It will be presented by Dr. Cynthia Morris, gynecologist and medical director of the Women’s Wellness Center at FCMH. Topics will include: HPV, Gardasil vaccine and menstrual cycle. Enjoy light refreshments and a tea bar. Reserve a space by calling 740-333-2710.

“The purpose behind Healthy University is to help educate the community on various topics and starting it off with a modern day mother/daughter tea is perfect. We want to provide knowledge about health topics that pertain to all age ranges,” said Chelsie Hornsby, FCMH director of development.

The series will be held on the third Tuesday of the month at FCMH. The topic for July will be Sun Safety, presented by Tabitha Melvin, PA-C at FCMH and Universal Dermatology; September will be Birds and Bees, Help Me Please presented by Dr. Cynthia Morris; and November will be Getting You through the Winter Healthy presented by Jeannie Bihl, RN community educator with the Fayette County Health District.

“The Fayette County Health District is excited to partner with FCMH on Healthy University. It has been a goal of ours for a long time to offer these type of education classes to the community. It’s a pleasure working with such a fabulous team at FCMH and we look forward being to a part of the upcoming classes for 2016,” said Leigh Cannon, deputy health commissioner.
