Girls' Night Out is a LWBIWH program geared toward female college freshmen.

The Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health (LWBIWH), its exclusive hospital sponsor San Angelo Community Medical Center, and Angelo State University’s Health Clinic and Counseling Services, recently hosted Girls’ Night Out, a program geared toward female college freshman to help raise awareness about physical, mental and emotional health.

Expected attendance for the event was about 500 women ages 18 to 22. However, more than 600 young women filled Angelo State University’s C.J. Davidson Conference Center to peruse multiple vendors, enter raffles for chances to win several prizes and participate in self-defense and fitness demonstrations.

Girls’ Night Out attendees also had the opportunity to watch a “Date Rape Myth” fashion show and listen to three speakers who presented on topics including sexual health, sexually transmitted infections and establishing sexual boundaries.

Elizabeth Coronado, M.D., was one of the speakers featured at the event. She practices obstetrics and gynecology at Community Medical Associates and serves as a member of the LWBIWH Advisory Board.

Additional subjects covered at the event included coping with stress and anxiety, living independently and general women’s health topics.
