In March 1992, Dr. Karen Addis and her husband Dr. Walt Patton opened Copperstate OB/GYN, a premier women’s healthcare facility focused on providing exceptional care and expert guidance to women of all ages. Today, Dr. Addis & her team celebrate 30 years of empowering and supporting women throughout every stage of life by launching I Am Woman: A Celebration of Womanhood.
As women, we often underestimate the power of our bodies. From our natural maternal instincts that develop at a young age to our ability to persevere through the pains of monthly menstrual cycles to enduring continual hormonal changes throughout every stage of life, to giving and sustaining life, to conquering menopause or to fighting cancer, our bodies are incredible.
Our bodies possess the power to accomplish and overcome so many great things that we, at times, fail to recognize.
Womanhood is a beautiful journey filled with self-discovery and appreciation for all of the amazing things our bodies are capable of accomplishing and overcoming.
Unfortunately, though, nowhere in our educational studies throughout adolescence are we taught this.
Yes, young women may learn about male and female genitalia, menstrual cycles, and procreation in their grade school Health Education class, but those lessons lack a focus on empowering young women to embrace their femininity and celebrate their womanhood fully.
I Am Woman: A Celebration of Womanhood, inspired by Emmy Meli’s soulful women’s empowerment ballad, “I Am Woman,” will be a year-long educational celebration that bridges that gap and encourages women of all ages to appreciate their bodies from the inside out.
Each month, we will publish a blog post highlighting an amazing fact about the female body and health care and treatments to support various aspects of our growth, development and health. In addition to our monthly blog posts, we’ll be hosting Facebook Live sessions and giveaways each month in our Facebook group, Tucson Women Healthy Living, that will celebrate womanhood and test follower’s knowledge!
It has been a true honor to serve the women of Tucson, AZ, over the last 30 years. We are looking forward to continuing our mission of educating, empowering, and supporting women in their journey through womanhood for the next 30 years and beyond!
