Dr. Farrugia on Expert Panel at Centegra Health Strong Woman Event in Crystal Lake

The 11th Annual Centegra Health Strong Woman Event in Crystal Lake was a big success. It was the largest turnout so far and attendees expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to take advantage of several free screenings and discounts, one-on-one time with physicians and providers, and the Centegra Provider panel discussion. There were 434 registered attendees, including walk-ins.


I had the opportunity to be featured in a panel discussion with five other health care providers where we discussed issues pertaining to women’s health and answered questions on several topics, including breast health.

Additionally, I hosted two lunch tables where I talked about the evolving personalized approach to breast cancer care.

The following were some of the comments we received:

“I look forward to this event every year. Thank you!”

“Love all the accessible information for our health. Good Doctors. Good hospital.”

“I absolutely love this event! Please keep it coming. Women need these opportunities to learn about our health so we can make ourselves a priority along with our families.”

“Thank you for offering this very informative day with so many choices regarding health issues. My respect for Centegra has increased.”
