Priya is pleased to welcome Dr. Evelina Swartzman, a local obstetrician/gynecologist, as a guest speaker on March 10.
“We’re simply here to help, and ensure a strong future for our Jewish community,” said Annie Glickman, Director of Priya: Growing Jewish Families.
Dr. Swartzman will be the guest speaker at an evening of learning and conversation on “Our Elusive Fertility: What every woman should know before, during and after conception.” Her presentation will illuminate how a woman’s body functions optimally and address what is normal vs. the not-so-obvious signs of when to worry. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
Tuesday, March 10, from 6:30-8:30 PM
JFS Brookside East (425 E. 63rd Street, Kansas City, MO 64110)
