It’s time for some girl talk.

Tulane Health System is offering a free community education session on the topic of female sexual health. Presented by nationally recognized expert Dr. Jennifer Berman, the talk – open to women only – explores a variety of topics many women are uncomfortable discussing with healthcare providers, despite there often being medical interventions that can improve sexual health and quality of life.

“There is a great deal of discussion around men’s sexual health, especially after the proliferation of Viagra and similar medications,” said Dr. Raju Thomas, a urologist with Tulane Health System. “But there are several aspects to women’s sexual health that people seem reticent to address. We want to change that and help people live more satisfying, happier lives.”

Dr. Berman’s presentation will focus on new diagnostic and treatment strategies for female sexual and urologic health. It will be held at 5 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 23 at Tulane Lakeside Hospital for Women and Children in Metairie. Light refreshments will be served.

Dr. Berman is a recurring co-host on the Emmy Award-winning talk show The Doctors, as well as a practicing urologist with specialized training in female urology and female sexual medicine. She has served as an expert on a variety of national television programs, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America and The Today Show, among others.
