Can I really get that from doing this?
What am I at risk for when I do…?
I was told that…
I looked up WedMD and it said …

Come to this workshop, bring questions, ask the questions you have always wondered about but may have been afraid to ask.
Want to ask a private question? Note cards will be given out to anyone who wants to know but doesn’t want to ask.
Knowledge is power and knowing how to protect yourself with regular screenings with someone who is non-judgmental are essential to good health.
