Bladder Health Month

Throughout Bladder Health Month, which is recognized in November, "Break Free from PFDs" Local Events will be held in locations across the county to further educate women. The pelvic health topics that will be discussed include: prolapse, incontinence, and other pelvic floor disorders.
