In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, Uvalde Memorial Hospital is hosting a Women’s Health Expo to take place on Tuesday, October 10th at the Ssgt. Willie de Leon Civic Center from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. Our focus is not only on breast cancer awareness but overall women’s health and encouraging women to take an active approach to their healthcare.

  • Five doctors, specializing in a variety of areas of women’s health take the stage to candidly answer attendees’ questions.

  • An Emmy Award winning actress and comedienne, Tracey Conway literally dropped dead from Sudden Cardiac Arrest during a live taping.

Tracey’s story — her sudden death, her miraculous recovery and the insight she’s gained living and thriving every day with a chronic heart condition —will entertain, touch, and inspire any audience. Aside from being an internationally acclaimed speaker, Tracey is an accomplished writer, contributing the lead story in Chicken Soup for the Soul, Healthy Living and has received two Emmy nominations for her writing on the television comedy series Almost Live!.
