Empowering Women in Their Gyn Health

Christina (@btrfly12) and I (@womenofteal) had the pleasure of being a part of the #patientchat today lead by @patientchat (  The topic was Empowering Women in their Gyn Health. We spoke about starting the #gyncsm chat and what we learned from those chats. We also shared information about the symptoms of gyn cancers, screening tests for cervical cancer and the pelvic exam controversy.

The complete transcript can be found here.

We appreciate the opportunity to share information about gyn cancers with the #patientchat audience.
