Seminar I (Sanford Room)

"Straight Talk with Dr. Lipman"
with John C. Lipman, MD, FSIR

Dr Lipman will be talking about empowering women about non-surgical options for fibroids.  Fibroids are the number one reason for hysterectomy in this country and they disproportionately affect African-American women.  Millions of women suffer with fibroids and despite being a benign condition, their life is often quite miserable. Often they have been told by their gynecologist to have a hysterectomy, but there is an outstanding option that many gynecologists won't tell their patients about (because they can't perform it).  It's called UFE (Uterine Fibroid Embolization).  It is an outpatient, non-surgical procedure which effectively treats fibroids without surgery. Condoleezza Rice had the procedure on a Friday and went back to work that Monday.  Unfortunately for African-American women, this is one of the best kept secrets in medicine. Whether you suffer from fibroids yourself, or know someone who does (and we are sure you do!), this is a seminar not to be missed!

Seminar II (Sanford Room)

"Food, Family and Fabulousness!"
with
Doralis Leslie

Find a way to balance feeding your family and focusing on you too. We all want to make the right choice for our families. We tend to be the primary gourmet chiefs in our homes and we also often are the garbage can too! Putting up and eating what our children leave behind. Our conscience to that is that ever changing dress size. Come hear how you can change what your family consumes, where you can watch your own waistline. And be just as
“Fabulous as you want to be!”
