Screening Tests and Women’s Health
Wednesday, Sept. 15, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
Normally, we only go to see the doctor when we are sick. Women need to pay close attention to those annual visits and the screenings that are required for every stage of life. Dr. Michael Evers, Assistant Professor in the UNC Women’s Primary Healthcare Division, shares screenings that are necessary and tips for the annual gynecology visit.

Cholesterol Numbers: The Real Discussion
Wednesday, Sept. 22, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m.
September is Cholesterol Education Month and the UNC Wellness Center, the Lipid Prevention Clinic at UNC, and McLendon Clinical Laboratories have combined efforts to promote cholesterol education and screenings. Join Phil Mendys, PharmD, Adjunct Professor of Medicine and Pharmacotherapy and Co-Director of the Lipid Prevention Clinic at UNC, as he discusses the “numbers” behind the assessment of cardiovascular disease and risk assessment. Cholesterol numbers may seem complicated if you don’t know how to interpret them. Dr. Mendys will help us to gain a better understanding of their meaning to our overall heart health.

Reinventing Yourself at Midlife and Beyond
Wednesday, Sept. 22, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
Join professional coach Vicki Field to gain simple, down-to-earth strategies and inspirational guidance to successfully face down midlife crisis and pull out the stops for a great life ahead.
You’ll learn how to:

  • Navigate the stages and stumbling blocks of midlife change
  • Zero in on what feeds your soul and target new possibilities in your life
  • Practice productive floundering and create positive change
  • Move ahead with steady steps to reinvent yourself

We all have what it takes to reinvent ourselves. Anyone can learn how to use these tips to spark possibilities, renew dreams, and create a satisfying life — no matter what age you are.
