New Book Urges Women to Take Control of Their Health. Dr. Denise Howard provides vital gynecologic and general medical education – As a practicing physician, Dr. Denise Howard has taken care of women of all ages, backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses and has discerned a troubling pattern: most are not properly equipped with information about their bodies and overall health. This lack of knowledge places them at risk of making poor choices. Dr. Howard now looks to teach women and girls about their bodies, medical risks and what steps can be taken to prevent problems with “The Essence of You: Your Guide to Gynecological Health.”

In “The Essence of You,” Dr. Howard showcases the many developmental stages of a woman’s growth and highlights her extensive medical expertise. She arms women with valuable information to help them manage their health and interact with the complex healthcare system.

“Limited understanding of health issues can significantly affect a woman’s well-being and place her at the mercy of less-than-competent providers,” Dr. Howard said. “Women tend to make the health care decisions for their families. When women are better informed, their families are better off.”

“The Essence of You” gives basic, yet critical medical information. The book encourages readers to be proactive about their health and to take advantage of preventative screening measures. For more information, please visit
