Dr. Ramzi Aboujaoude and nurse practitioner Lauren Cook will each teach a class this spring.
Two one-hour courses taught by VPFW providers will once again be part of the Lifelong Learning Institute of Chesterfield’s course catelog this spring. Anyone over 50 can join the Lifelong Learning Institute for $150 a semester, which allows access to hundreds of courses on anything from art to technology to history, including our favorite: health and wellness.
“Hold It! Leaky Bladder Affects Women of All Ages” on Feb. 9
“Hold It! Leaky Bladder Affects Women of All Ages” will be taught by Dr. Ramzi Aboujaoude of the Urogynecology Center at VPFW on Thursday, February 9, from 12-1pm. This course will address female pelvic issues such as: urinary incontinence or leakage, pelvic organ prolapse (dropping of the vagina, uterus, cystocele, rectocele), overactive bladder, and fecal incontinence. Dr. Aboujaoude – pronounced “Ah-boo-jah-dee” – will talk about these issues and treatment options available.
“What Comes After Menopause?” on March 1
“What Comes After Menopause?” will be taught by nurse practitioner Lauren Cook on Wednesday, March 1, 10-11am. When you think of health concerns among senior women, what comes to mind? Osteoporosis, breast cancer, diabetes, and hypertension are commonly known challenges faced by women as they age…but there is so much more than that. This course will cover many of the gynecological problems senior women experience that don’t often come up in conversation.
