Lakeview Regional Medical Center, a campus of Tulane Medical Center, will host its annual Girls’ Health Day in collaboration with the Junior League of Greater Covington on Saturday, January 27th from 9:30am until 12:30pm on the Lakeview Regional campus. The theme “Be Healthy. Be Happy. Be You.” incorporates the topics of girl’s health issues, self-esteem, healthy eating, fitness, puberty and changes to expect, sexual health topics-(optional session-mature subject), ways to prevent bullying, and social media/internet safety tips.
“Girls Health Day is designed to be a fun time for mothers and daughters to grow closer while learning more about growing up and being healthy,” states Dr. Brandee Simon-Davis, a Junior League member and physician at Lakeview Regional Physician Group. “This event is geared for girls 8 to 14, but moms can definitely learn a few things about social media and internet safety, as well. It’s always good to stay current to keep up the kids.”
Other activities will include free health screenings, including vision, dental hygiene, BMI measurements and blood pressure assessments. Attendees can “Be a Doctor for the Day,” by experiencing a hands-on opportunity to try the Da Vinci Robot—a limited number of spots are available to perform simulated surgical activities using the surgical robot. There will also be many door prizes and giveaways.
