The Service League of Greenville has donated $5,000 to support the second annual Military Women’s Health Symposium to be held September 19.

With the goal of advancing care for women who serve, the symposium will bring together both military and civilian health care professionals who treat women who are active duty or veterans across eastern North Carolina. Invited to attend are physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, psychologists, counselors, social workers, physical therapists and any other interested health professionals.

Founded in 1938, the Service League of Greenville is an nonprofit, all-volunteer service organization of approximately 165 women who donate willingly of their time and talent for the benefit of their community — Greenville, Pitt County, and eastern North Carolina.

“Hope and faith signify the work of the Service League,” said Ann Taylor, president of the Service League of Greenville. “We have a broad scope of interest which leads into many directions, some old and some new. Our hope is to reach out to the community, and supporting the Military Women's Health Symposium is one of many ways that the Service League of Greenville can give of themselves to the service of our community.”

The symposium is jointly provided by the Office of Continuing Medical Education of the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, Vidant Health, Durham VA Medical Center, Duke Area Health Education Center and Eastern Area Health Education Center.

“Women play a vital role in military service, but their health care needs are underrecognized,” said Karen Goble, assistant director for continuing medical, dental and pharmacy education at Eastern AHEC. “This regional partnership, with the support of the Service League of Greenville, can make a difference in the lives of women who serve.”

Eastern AHEC is a non-profit affiliated with ECU that provides continuing education and other resources to health care professionals and students in 23 counties of eastern North Carolina.

The Military Women’s Health Symposium will be held at the Eastern AHEC building at 2600 W. Arlington Blvd. For more information, visit www.easternahec.net or call 252-744-5223.
