Bellin Health Presents Pelvic Health Events

Ashwaubenon, Bellevue ‘Life & Leaks’ sessions to focus on urinary incontinence

Bellin Health will continue its new pelvic health series with free sessions on urinary incontinence. The next “Life & Leaks” events will be held from 9-10 a.m. Monday, May 15 at Bellin Fitness Ashwaubenon, 1630 Commanche Ave.; and 5:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 17 at Bellin Fitness Bellevue, 3263 Eaton Road.

Katherine Reinke, BSN, RN, and Jeanette Knill, physical therapist, will present during the sessions, which will focus on what women can do about the often-embarrassing problem of incontinence. The goal is to address the topic directly and remove some of the stigma of this common problem. Reinke and Knill are care team members at the Bellin Health Pelvic Center.

Attendees who are interested in reviewing their individual Pelvic Health Screening with a healthcare professional should complete an online screening questionnaire prior to the event. Upon arrival, they should stop at the registration desk to schedule a 5-minute screening session. This one-on-one consultation will take place immediately after the main presentation.

Light refreshments will be served at the event. Registration is available online at bellin.org/calendar or by calling (920) 445-7373.

Future pelvic health series sessions will be held at Bellin’s clinics in Oconto and Sturgeon Bay. Details will be announced at a later date.
