JAMESTOWN – When it comes to health, women must account for menopause, hot flashes and the
impacts of childbirth.

The JRMC U: Women’s Health is set for 11 a.m. Thursday, May 18, at Two Rivers Activity Center and includes a free light lunch. This free JRMC U event will help individuals understand how the female body works and how to care for it. In addition, women can learn about comprehensive care including treatments for hot flashes, urinary incontinence, organ prolapse as well as painful sex or menstrual cycles.

Presenting is OB/GYN Dr. Emily Stromquist. She joined the team at Jamestown Regional Medical Center in
2022. Stromquist has more than a decade of experience in women’s health.

She, along with Dr. Gregg McAdoo and Nurse Practitioner Makenzie Breitbach, complete the OB/GYN
team at JRMC.

The JRMC OB/GYN team treats patients of all ages for high-risk birth, infertility, permanent and temporary
contraception, cervical cancer screenings/breast exams, heavy, long-lasting or painful periods, hot flashes, painful intercourse and post-menopausal bleeding.


Along with Two Rivers Activity Center, JRMC offers regular opportunities to learn about common health issues and how to live a high-quality life.

Stromquist said she hopes to answer questions about care at home as well as surgical options, nonsurgical options what to expect in recovery. Questions people often ask are: “What’s normal?” and “When do I see a doctor?” Individuals can ask questions privately and in advance at

“Many of the questions women ask feel private and we respect that," Stromquist said. "However, if you are asking yourself a question about your body, chances are, another woman is too. Women never need to feel embarrassed. We here to help them find relief and live their best lives.”

Information like this is important because women’s health can impact the individual woman as well as her entire family, she said.

“We hope individuals attend this class and find the information they need and deserve,” she said.

Future JRMC U classes include:

  • Tuesday, June 13: “Health & Wealth” featuring estate-planning support; presenters include Foundation Director Lisa Jackson and Doug Olson from Thompson & Associates
  • Thursday, June 15: “Joint & Arthritis Care” featuring Parick Walter, orthopedic physician assistant

All events are set for 11 a.m. JRMC U classes are always free of charge and include a light lunch. Attendees do not need to be TRAC members to attend.
