Staff report

Obici Hospital, 2800 Godwin Boulevard, will host Women’s (and Girls’) Night Out – a multi-generation health fair and evening of fun – on Nov. 16 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

&uot;Women look forward to these periodic outings for several reasons – they get their questions answered, they hear good speakers, they spend a couple of hours on themselves,&uot; says Obici spokeswoman Pam Lowney. &uot;This time we’re suggesting they bring their mother or daughter or someone they’re extra close to so they’ll enjoy the night even more.&uot;
