Date:4/8/2009

NEW YORK (April 8, 2009) -- How do I teach my body to stop craving food? How can I age gracefully with the right incision? What are the risks of anesthesia? Can long-term use of Fosamax actually increase risk of fractures?

From diet to surgery to bone health, medical experts and authors answer all your questions at the seventh annual Iris Cantor Women's Health Center Press Luncheon, hosted by Fox 5 medical reporter Dr. Sapna Parikh.

Registration is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Program begins at 12 p.m. RSVP is required.

Speakers include: Louis Aronne, M.D., one of the nation's leading weight-loss experts and author of the New York Times best seller, "THE SKINNY: On Losing Weight Without Being Hungry"; Panchali Dhar, M.D., anesthesiologist and author of "Before the Scalpel: What Everyone Should Know in Advance"; Anthony LaBruna, M.D., plastic surgeon and author of "Your Survival Guide to Cosmetic Surgery"; and Joseph Lane, M.D., orthopedic surgeon and a nationally recognized expert on bone loss and disease, who has published more than 300 research articles on osteoporosis and metabolic bone diseases, most recently, a Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma study that shows that long-term use of Fosamax may increase the risk of fractures in some patients.

Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital; Iris Cantor, noted philanthropist and founder of the Iris Cantor Women's Health Center; and Dr. Orli Etingin, director of the Iris Cantor Women's Health Center, will also participate in the program.
