The Gyne’s Guide for College Women, How to Have a Healthy, Safe and Happy Four Years” is a compelling, informative and timely read that guides young women as they navigate their college years. Dr Scanlon found there was such a strong demand from her young female patients to see her during their Thanksgiving break from College, she extends her hours over the holidays so every patient gets as much time as they need. As a result she was inspired to the write the book. The Gyne’s Guide offers common sense information about sex and so much more. Advice on how to deal with stress, campus safety, drug and alcohol abuse, diet, sleep deprivation, depression, peer pressure, self esteem, and staying true to your values. After treating thousands of young women over the past two decades, and as the mother of two teenage daughters, Dr. Scanlon has found most are NOT prepared for what lies ahead. NO guide on how to stay safe in a new environment where sexual predators lurk, NO plan on how to cope with their academic pressures as well as drinking, NO parent to keep their schedule and prepare meals, NO strategy for safe sex and NO idea how to say “NO.”
