Women’s Health Center opens on School of Medicine campus

Story by Tessa Bowen

Women in northern Nevada now have more options and resources for their health care. The UNR Med Women's Health Center is now open on the University of Nevada, Reno campus, offering obstetrical, gynecological and midwifery services to women in Reno and northern Nevada.

UNR Med is pleased to bring this top-quality outpatient clinic to the growing northern Nevada community, said Neda Etezadi-Amoli, M.D. '02, F.A.C.O.G., clinical professor and interim chair of UNR Med's department of OB/GYN, especially as women's health continues to be a disparity for Nevada.

"Our team is dedicated to expanding access to outstanding and evidence-based preventive care which helps women stay healthy and improves overall well-being," Etezadi-Amoli said. "We're excited about opening a clinical practice which will not only serve the health needs of women in our region, but will also train future health care providers about the importance of women's health across specialties."

Medical providers M. Pia Anderson, M.D., FACOG; Lynn Anderson, DNP, CNM and Denise Rubinfeld, MS, CNM and their dedicated team are trained specifically in women's health issues and serve as an extension of services offered by primary care providers to address the distinct needs of women.

"The Women's Health Center is a shining example of how UNR Med continues to provide consistently exceptional care for our community," said UNR Med Dean Thomas L. Schwenk, M.D. "UNR Med's community-based roots began nearly 50 years ago, and the legacy continues today. With the Women's Health Center, we're recognizing the opportunity to bridge the gap in women's health care by providing education and offering specialty health care services for our community."
