Women’s health lunch and learn will help separate fact from fiction

Skaggs Foundation Speaker Series continues on Oct. 9

Conflicting news stories, online chatter and unsolicited advice can leave many women unsure what is best for their health. Kelli Gosch, WHCNP, who has 20 years of experience working in the field of women’s health, will be the featured speaker during Straight Talk on Women’s Health Issues. The lunch and learn event set for Oct. 9 is part of the Skaggs Foundation 2015 Speaker Series.

“Many women are confused by how often they need to have their wellness exams, what tests they should have and when they should have those tests,” Gosch explained. “During the lunch and learn, 
I’m going try to clear up the confusion.”

Gosch will also be sharing the top five questions she has been asked and then give the answers to those questions.

“These are great questions I’ve been asked over the years, but as a provider, I know there are still many women out there who might be too embarrassed to ask these specific questions about their health,” Gosch said. “I’m going to address those questions so they don’t have to ask.”

Gosch has been a women’s health nurse practitioner for 20 years. Prior to working in women’s health, Gosch was a NICU nurse. She has been part of the CoxHealth Family Medicine and Obstetrics clinic in Branson for the past four years.

Straight Talk on Women’s Health Issues will be held in the Tree Rooms at Cox Medical Center Branson from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 9. The lunch and learn is free however reservations are required. Email Victoria.Miller@skaggs.net or call 348-8998.
