EVENT DATE: Jun 08, 2014
Rocco, my future husband, and I will be attempting our first ever triathlon on June 8th, 2014! We are excited for this new adventure as well as the opening of an excellent women's clinic in Madison. So we decided to combine our excitement for these 2 great things by raising money for Share the Health clinic and in return we hope to survive our first triathlon.
Share the Health is a gynecology specialty clinic for uninsured women in Madison. It was established as an independent organization, supported by community members representing many local outreach groups, and coordinated by students. Share the Health is a free consultative clinic that aims to diagnoses precancerous and cancerous conditions and treat gynecologic pathology including benign and precancerous conditions. Involving students in all levels of clinic operations and patient care has the power to increase medical student exposure to and interest in gynecology. As a result, Share the Health will provide much needed gynecologic services to improve the health status of our community today and cultivate future professionals of all disciplines who will ensure these services remain available for years to come.
