A Closer Look at Women’s Health
Each August we take a closer look at health issues affecting women and ask local experts to share best practices, latest developments and their advice on four key issues.
This year Dr. Diane Spatz, of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, explains the many reasons that breastfeeding is still the best option and how to help new mothers succeed. Dr. Joannie Yeh, a pediatrician with Nemours duPont Pediatrics Media, explores anemia and how to tell if it’s affecting your teen … or you. And although lung cancer is often thought to be a man’s disease, Dr. John Kucharczuk of Penn Medicine tells us it’s the leading cause of death in women, but there’s plenty that women can do to protect themselves. Finally, Tower Health’s Dr. Christine Cho explains what women who experience hair loss can do.
We hope you find something helpful in these pages. And here’s to your health!
