LEWISTON – “Innovative New Treatments for Heavy Periods” will be the topic of an Accenting Women’s Health program offered on Thursday, Dec. 1, at Central Maine Medical Center.

Gynecologist Dr. Michael T. Drouin will discuss “normal versus heavy periods.” His presentation will examine the causes of heavy periods and what is available for treatment, including new minimally invasive procedures that do not involve a hysterectomy.

A question and answer session will follow. Spouses and partners are encouraged to attend.

The program is another in an ongoing series of Accenting Women’s Health presentations exploring women’s health issues.

Drouin is a long-time member of the greater Lewiston-Auburn medical community. He earned his medical degree from Saint Louis University School of Medicine in St. Louis and completed residencies at Women and Infants’ Hospital of Rhode Island and Rhode Island Hospital Obstetrics and Gynecology Program. He is board certified by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Drouin practices in association with gynecologists Drs. Ted Roth and Susan W. Gaylord at the Women’s Health Center and the CMMC Bladder Control Center, clinical services of Central Maine Medical Center.

The program will be presented from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Chairmen’s Rooms, located on the lower level of the 12 High Street Medical Office Building adjacent to CMMC.
