Talk about a frank discussion…Dr. Margaret Larkins-Pettigrew shared information about women’s health we never knew. From what the doctor is looking for when we get our routine pelvic exam to how important it is to keeping our bodies active and ways to do it! We asked questions and got the answers. The “Doc” is such an inspiring force in motivating women to share their gifts and enjoy life! Never a dull moment during her presentations, she will be back for the second week of Sisters and Friends, September 17-23 to offer more candid information about how to get the best out of life.
