Kalwa women receive health advice from the new GPM gynecologist on staff at SHC

Over fifty women packed the main hall of the GPM Joshua Greenberger Learning Center (JLC) to participate in a Women's Health workshop run by Dr. Swetambari Thanawala, the Gynecologist on staff at the GPM Shravan Health Center. Dr. Thanawala is the first doctor in the neighborhood to specifically serve women's health needs, and the women have responded with eager enthusiasm.

The Women's Health workshop is part of a community health series run by GPM in cooperation with Doctors for You and the Thane Municipal Health Authorities as part of the GPM Shravan Health Center Outreach Program. The series aims to educate people in the neighborhood about ways to improve their health and wellbeing.
