Women are Fascinating
Hello, I am Dr. Erin Evans. I am an Obstetrician/Gynecologist with CHI Health Clinic, and this is my first contribution to the CHI Health Women’s Health blog. I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I came to Omaha 14 years ago to start my undergraduate training at Creighton University. After receiving a bachelor degree in science, I started medical school at Creighton University School of Medicine. Omaha just could not get rid of me, and after medical school, I completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Creighton University Medical Center. Now I work in the “real world” taking care of women’s health issues on a daily basis.
When patients ask me, “Why did you go into this field?” I reply, “Women are fascinating!” We truly are. We keep the world going. Behind every strong man is a stronger woman (I am a little biased, but give me this one indulgence). We are so versatile. Some of us bare children and care for every need of the family. While some of us are CEOs of major corporations. And then there are some of us who do both.
As women, we are usually concerned with taking care of other people. Whether it be the needs of our children, grandchildren, significant others, or aging parents, we are usually making sure all the needs of others are met. Oftentimes, we get so caught up meeting the needs of others that we forget about our own needs. And that is what I really like about my job. I get to interact with women of every age and give them the tools to meet their own needs. I get to remind them of their self-worth and the importance of taking care of themselves.
As I make regular entries to this blog, I hope that I can touch upon topics that interest you and somehow fill your needs. Don’t expect any profound messages or enlightened dogma, because you won’t find it here. But do expect honesty and frankness. Until next time …
