Joan Jett Greets Fans at Farm Sanctuary Benefit

Joan Jett Greets Fans at Farm Sanctuary Benefit

Fans queued outside The Plum Café Friday afternoon to meet rock and roll mega-star Joan Jett.  Jett hosted a benefit for Farm Sanctuary, a leading farm animal protection and rescue organization in America. While there, guests and supporters were able to enjoy a vegetarian buffet, as well as a meet and greet with the legendary musician.

News 10 had a chance to speak with Jett about her involvement with Farm Sanctuary.

“I think what they do is good work— it’s a unique niche.” Jett discovered the Sanctuary while they were on a rescue mission. “There was terrible flooding on the Mississippi. I read about cattle being stranded on high ground and Farm Sanctuary sent trucks to pick all those animals up.”

Jett has had a long career in the music industry and continues to perform for die-hard fans from multiple generations. She calls the range of ages in her fans “beautiful”.

First in US to be Accredited in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery

The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology conducted the first Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery certification examination in August 2013.  Urogynecologists Larry Bowen, M.D., and Wesley Hilger, M.D., are among the first in the nation to be board certified in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS).

The recognition of FPMRS as a subspecialty Board represents many years of collaborative efforts from the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the American Board of Urology.  Both urologists and gynecologists with training in this field can now become Board Certified in FPMRS. Board certified fellowships in FPMRS have been around for many years, but individuals were not granted the privilege of board certification until now.
