You have memories to make and milestones to achieve. To do it all, you have to prioritize and nurture yourself, and your health.

This special event provides women in our community with a unique opportunity to learn about medical concerns and solutions from women providing care in your community in a casual and comfortable setting.

Opportunities to request and schedule appointments with providers and screening services will also be available that day.

Nutrition Education, blood pressure & glucose screenings will also be available.
