20th Annual Women's Health and Wellness Conference

Sep 22, 2017

“Extinguishing the Flames of Burnout and Stress to Achieve Life’s Balance,” is the theme for the 20th annual Women’s Health and Wellness Conference taking place October 6th. 

Christin McDermott, Print and Media Specialist at the Olson Center for Women’s Health, says the day’s speakers and breakout sessions will address various aspects of resiliency.  She says this year’s theme evolved from past attendees’ comments about the challenges of balancing their personal and professional lives.

“We kind of went from that angle and found some great specialists in our community to present on topics where they will find this encouragement and this motivation to not just continue on but to do it with strength and courage.  So, we are really excited about the specialists and the topics and about our sponsors that are going to provide education and resources for our attendees.”

McDermott says there will also be a health fair with over 30 exhibitors and the opportunity for low-cost screenings.

Preregistration is required and must be received by the end of the day Friday, September 29th.  The conference will take place at the LaVista Conference Center.
