Dr. Nnewihe strives to maintain excellence by practicing evidence-based medicine and staying at the forefront of medical advancement. She is Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, a member of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologist, and a member of the American Medical Association. Dr. Nnewihe has special interests in the areas of adolescent sexual and reproductive health, authoring a chapter on the topic in an online textbook (Public Health Management and Policy). She specializes in minimally invasive laparoscopic gynecologic surgery and offers many office and same day procedures for the treatment of symptomatic fibroids and irregular painful cycles. Dr. Nnewihe has been practicing in South Jersey since 2009 and recently opened up Be Well Women’s Health (bewellgyn.com), in Northfield, New Jersey.

Card Making wtih Janice Time 10:00 AM Location AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute, 2500 English Creek Ave., Building 400, Dr. Joseph Stella Conference Room, Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234

We will make Cards using a variety of materials. These ideas and techniques can be used to make all kinds of greeting cards and can be more personal and much less expensive than those cards you have to purchase. All supplies will be provided.

Janice has been making most of her cards for the last 18 years. She started this craft while living full time and traveling with her husband on their trawler. The craft materials would not need a lot of space, so she thought. That changed as the materials began to take over many drawers needed for essential clothes, etc. and hiding things from the Captain became a challenge.
