BRADENTON - Manatee Gynecology hosted their inaugural Modern Woman Wellness Expo. The event showcased several local business that promote nutrition and good health, including aesthetic treatments such as waxing and non-animal tested make-up tutorials.

Dr. Kinnary Desai says she wants this expo to be a place where a woman can come for all her yearly checkups. "We’re trying to make this place sort of a one stop shop so that they can be healthy and feel good at the same time,” she said. 

Panel discussions with health experts also stressed the importance of yearly checkups. Dr. Desai says prevention is key, they want to prevent diseases early rather than diagnose and treat them later.
