The series will kick off at 7:00 pm on Thursday, July 21 with Dr. Michael Turner of Abbeville Urology, who will talk about the causes of and treatment options for stress urinary incontinence, a common condition affecting women.

He earned his medical degree at the Medical University of South Carolina and completed his Residency at the Medical College of Georgia. Dr. Turner has been in private practice since 1981.
“I see so many women who suffer in silence from stress urinary incontinence,” said Dr. Turner. “Because they are too embarrassed to discuss the problem, they are often unaware of the many treatment options available to them. I look forward to sharing some of the latest surgical and non-surgical techniques used in the successful treatment of this condition.”
The Ladies Night Out program series will be held on a monthly basis in AAMC’s Administrative Wing Education Room located at 420 Thomson Circle in Abbeville.
