  From a fashion show.

 To a cooking demonstration.

   Even massages, a department store filled with a night of fun may be  the last place you would think about getting medical advice.
   But that's just what happened Thursday at Dillard's in Longview.
    "Women will come out and check out things in a less hospital like atmosphere, they feel comfortable, it's a good time" - Sharon Franks

       Sharon Franks is one of about 500 women who attended this program put on by Good Shepherd Medical Center's newly formed organization, Good for Women.
   Is all about providing women with health advice away from a medical setting.

   'It makes for a great atmosphere so we can ask questions that we may not want to ask our doctor, and get a little information so we might go to our doctor" - Sharon Franks
   "Women say it's a good way to get together and talk about health, without men like me hanging around --- making for a more comfortable situation" - Kevin BoycE


Organizer of the event Gina Terry says East Texas women need events like this.
   "it's important because we want women to realize how important their health is, they are decision makers in their household" - Gina Terry, Good for Women

  It's the first endeavor. But Good Shepherd says more nights are to come.
 "it's a lot of fun"
