Tift Regional Health System (TRHS) invites all women to attend a free lunch-and-learn seminar on women’s health issues on July 20, 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.,  at the Tift Regional Community Events Center in Tifton.  The seminar, a part of the TRHS Rejuvenate Women’s Health Series, will feature two speakers: general surgeon Tracy Nolan, M.D. and registered dietitian Lauren Saxena, RD, LD, CLC.

Dr. Nolan, a board-certified general surgeon with South Georgia Surgical, will discuss “Women: When is it Time for Surgery?”    Women who are dealing with issues such as chronic fatigue, irritation, mood swings, depression or unexplained weight loss or gain may have a disease and not even know it.  Common disorders affecting women include diseases of the thyroid, breast and skin.  What are the symptoms for these conditions, what are treatment options and when is surgery appropriate?  Dr. Nolan will provide the answers at this event.  

Saxena, a registered dietitian with TRHS and Affinity Pediatrics, will provide a presentation titled “Food and Diet Trends:  What is Fact and What is Fiction?”  Women are concerned about eating right, getting-in-shape and staying fit.  But, sometimes, it’s easy to get wrapped-up in the health trends of the moment.  From magazine articles to national news segments, these food and exercise trends seem to come out of nowhere and dominate the national psyche.  Registered Dietitian Lauren Saxena will discuss what trends are legitimate and what are hype, providing advice on a true healthy lifestyle. 

This event is free and includes a complimentary meal.  Seating is limited and registration is required.  To register, call 229-353-6316 or visit the calendar of events at  The Tift Regional Community Events Center is located in Tifton at 1657 South Carpenter Road, connected to the Tiftarea YMCA.
