St. Anthony Regional Hospital is pleased to present the third annual Girls Night Out, a “To Your Health” community event for women, on Wednesday, April 10 at Carrollton Centre in Carroll. Women of all ages are invited to socialize, shop and participate in the program. Vendor booths will open at 5:00 p.m., and the program will begin at 6:30 p.m.

The wildly popular event focused on women’s health is designed to engage women in candid conversation about a variety of topics, including balancing schedules and personal health. Dialogue is encouraged, and attendees may submit anonymous questions prior to the event by email to as well as during the event.

“By setting aside time to talk specifically about women’s health issues, it is our goal to let the women of west central Iowa know that we, as health care providers, are here to listen and to help,” said Suzy Feigofsky, M.D., of the Iowa Heart Center located at St. Anthony.

St. Anthony medical staff members will be on site to lead discussion as well as a question and answer session. Physicians will include: Dr. Feigofsky; Amy Canuso, D.O., St. Anthony Mental Health; Tina Flores Schechinger, M.D., St. Anthony Clinic; and Michelle Heim, D.O., McFarland Clinic.

“Women give so much of themselves – to their family, community, and careers,” said Dr. Canuso. “This is an opportunity to relax and have some fun while we learn how important it is to be healthy - mentally and physically.”

Event planners have created an inviting environment for learning and sharing.

“This is an opportunity to make women’s health a priority, in a fun, friendly environment,” said Dr. Heim. “We hope to discuss a variety of topics in a comfortable setting, to educate and encourage women to make their health a priority in 2019 and beyond.”

Girls Night Out will remind women to make their own health a priority.

“As women, it’s easy to fall into our daily routines and allow our health concerns to take a backseat,” Flores said. “By bringing attention to the importance of women’s health, it is our goal to spark discussion and improve the well-being of women in our community.”
