EBWA--Welcoming All Women of All Ages

November 20

"Wellness Through the Ages" with Kimberly Kilby, M.D.

 

Confused over whether to get a flu shot, have a mammogram, take supplementary vitamins, exclude animal fats from your diet……..?

It can sometimes be hard to keep up with what is medically recommended to help women stay healthy over their lifetimes. On November 20, Kimberly Kilby, MD will focus on making it simpler to understand what health issues you may face as you age and how to be proactive about your health. Some of the topics you will hear about will include recommended cancer screening tests, vaccinations, mental health, nutrition, and that maddening post-menopausal belly fat!

Dr. Kimberly Kilby is the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education at Albany Medical College in Albany, NY, where she oversees the clinical portions of the medical school curriculum.  She is also assistant professor of surgery and family medicine.  Around UUSS where she has been a member since January 2014, she is a member of the choir, serves with the music committee and is mother of two step-sons.
