Dr Philip Walkom is the guest speaker for the October meeting of Manning Net at Club and will deliver a speech titled Endometriosis – the modern curse.

Local gynaecologist and obstetrician Dr Philip Walkom has been serving our community for more than 30 years, having delivered countless babies over his 40 year career, and gaining a great deal of respect and gratitude of so many women in his care of their gynaecological needs.

Along the way he has learned several things about life, the strength of women, and the importance of wearing bow ties.

"You don't want to lean over and have your tie dangling,” he says.

Dr Walkom will specifically discuss the topic of endometriosis, which is neither cancerous nor life threatening, but it can cause so many problems that it has been described as ‘the thorn within’. He will answer the questions: What is it? How does it get there? What are the risk factors?talk about symptoms and diagnosis. This promises to be a highly informative evening that all women would welcome as an opportunity to become better informed on this often debilitating disorder.

The event starts at 6.30pm, on October 26 at Club Taree.

The cost for the evening is $25, which includes a two-course meal with complimentary tea and coffee after the meal.
