“Women’s Wellbeing” meeting with ASL3 specialists at Palazzo Ducale

Genoa. Tomorrow, Wednesday 19 June at 8.30am Palazzo Ducale, Federsanità headquarters – Anci (Picardo room – fourth floor). The “Women’s Wellbeing” event is organized by the Department of Education for Correct Lifestyles and Community Programs Asl3, directed by Dr. Gianni Testino, in collaboration with Federsanità Anci Liguria, on the occasion of the Open Day on female prevention promoted by the National Observatory on Women’s Health (ONDA).

“In the Genoa metropolitan area – explains Gianni Testino, Director of the Department of Education for Correct Lifestyles and Community Programs ASL3 – in the pre-covid period 32% of women between 50 and 59 years old and 50% between 60 and 69 years old suffered from a pathology; while 12% between 50 and 59 years old and 27% between 60 and 69 years old were affected by at least two pathologies. Currently we do not yet have updated data, but estimates predict a worsening of the picture. It is therefore advisable to set up courses based on correct lifestyles, even in the presence of existing pathologies, in order to counter this trend. Just as has already happened with diagnostics and pharmacotherapy, prevention and health promotion programs, to be effective, must be modeled in relation to the characteristics of the female sex”.

Among the topics covered tomorrow by the ASL3 specialists: breast cancer prevention and early diagnosis, alcohol and lifestyle, abdominal circumference and metabolism, innovations in hormone replacement therapy in menopause, neurological prevention, fibromyalgia and osteoporosis, skin care. The intervention of the Italian Association of Women Doctors is also expected as part of the meeting.

The meeting will be moderated by Nicoletta Gandolfo, Director of the Imaging Department and coordinator of the ASL3 Breast Unit, and Tiberia Boccardo, Director of the ASL3 Prevention Department. The meeting is open to citizens until seats last.
