September 24, 2009 (El Cajon) – A women’s health fair will be held on Saturday, October 3 at Andres Restaurant, 1235 Morena Blvd. in San Diego (www.andresrestaurantsdc.com). Proceeds will benefit the Chase Avenue Family Health Clinic in El Cajon.

 The health fair is sponsored by San Diego Wedgies Chapter of the Blue Thong Society (www.bluethongsociety.com). Pledging to “blend the generations and fight frump,” Blue Thong Society describes its members as “fun, fabulous, smart, and sassy women of all ages who have blazed new trails and broken the molds since birth. We’ve worked, rebelled, rock ’n rolled, raised families and never failed to stand up for what we believe in. Now we’re ready for our ‘next rally’: a time for us, our girlfriends, and to give back to our communities while having fun!”

The event urges women to “Stop Coping. Start Living,” and will discuss “Treatment Options for Women’s Health Conditions.”


The program will include a presentation by Dr. Mel Kurtulus, obstretrician/gynecologist and medical director of the San Diego Women’s Health Center for Minimally invasive Gyn Surgery.

Registration opens at 1:45, with a lunch buffet at 2:30, presentations from 3 to 4 p.m., and stations with interactive health screens by health professionals from 4 to 6. Cost is $25 for pre-registrations and $30 at the door. Cash or check only. All attendees will receive goodie bags.

To RSVP, call Jean Clug at (858)560-8558.
