Bronson Offers Girls Night Out for Health - Bronson Healthcare

Published on April 11, 2012

In every stage of life, a woman's body constantly changes. Those changes inevitably lead to health-related questions and concerns, but women are sometimes reluctant to discuss these issues with friends or family, and sometimes even their own doctors.

Three upcoming, "Girls Night Out" events aim to create safe and fun opportunities for women to learn about common gynecologic, sexual health and reproductive issues. Physician experts in gynecology and women's health from Bronson Methodist Hospital will be on hand to answer questions and talk about the latest treatment options.

"I see women every day who needlessly suffer from problems like heavy bleeding, endometriosis, incontinence, and more," says OB/GYN, Tempest Allen, MD. "They don't always know about all the safe and effective solutions out there that can drastically improve their quality of life."

Martell's restaurant will provide an intimate atmosphere for attendees to enjoy free wine and appetizers during the event. Guests will also receive a one-week pass to the Bronson Athletic Club.

Girls Night Out events will be held at Martell's Restaurant on 3501 Greenleaf Blvd., Parkview Hills, Kalamazoo, Michigan. Wine and appetizers will be served at 6 p.m. and the program will run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Attendees can register for this free event at, or call (269) 341-6550 with questions.

Tuesday, April 24 - Steven Trillet, MD, Bronson OB/GYN Associates
Tuesday, May 1 - Tempest Allen, MD, Bronson OB/GYN Associates
Tuesday, May 8 - Paul Berkowitz, MD, Bronson Women's Service
