Women’s Health Open Day in Cremona: A Focus on Prevention

On Friday, March 8, 2024, ASST of Cremona organized a women’s open day in collaboration with the Hospitals of Cremona and Oglio Po, as well as local services. The event focused on prevention and included specialist visits, oncogenetic consultations, vaccination sessions, and free access information services.

The initiative, part of the program promoted by the Lombardy Region for World Women’s Day and World Day to fight HPV, was sponsored by the Municipality of Cremona and the Municipality of Casalmaggiore. Collaborating partners included ATS Val Padana, AIPA, APOM ETS, and Amici dell’Ospedale Oglio Po.

One of the highlights of the event was a discussion on menopause and aging of the skin led by Enrica Ronca and Enrica Mantovani, heads of family counseling centers in Cremona and Casalmaggiore respectively.

Participants had the opportunity to receive vaccinations against papillomavirus and undergo screening for hepatitis C. Antonella Laiolo, Director of Vaccinations and Infectious Disease Surveillance at ASST Cremona, emphasized the importance of vaccination in preventing HPV-related diseases.

In addition, a screening for hepatitis C was made available to women born between 1969 and 1989. Angelo Pan, Director of Infectious Diseases at Cremona Hospital, highlighted the importance of early detection and treatment for hepatitis C.

The event also addressed venous thromboembolism, a potentially life-threatening condition. Sophie Testa, Director of the Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center at ASST Cremona, discussed the risk factors and prevention strategies for this condition.

ATS Val Padana conducted three prevention campaigns focusing on oncology screening for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancers. The campaigns aimed to raise awareness about early detection and prevention measures for these common types of cancer.

Overall, the Women’s Health Open Day in Cremona provided valuable information and resources for women to prioritize their health and well-being. Participants were encouraged to take advantage of the various services and screenings offered to promote a proactive approach to their health.
