SPEAKING ABOUT WELLNESS FOR WOMEN


Quarterly Seminar Series: Count on Your Health

WellStar’s theme for our 2017 Speaking about Wellness for Women Quarterly Seminar Series is “Count On Your Health.” This four-part series is designed to help you keep track and “measure” different aspects of your health all year long. Join us for a year filled with education, prevention and early intervention information that will help you to live a life well-lived.

Please plan to attend our Healthy Happy Hours to visit health and wellness education booths and to also take advantage of free health screenings as part of our new “Get Screened” initiative. Early detection is the key to prevention. Many diseases have few noticeable symptoms, you may not even realize you are ill — or at risk for becoming ill — until it’s too late. Take advantage of our complimentary screenings to be proactive with prevention!

Participants that attend all four programs will receive a special gift at the end of the year.

Quit the Sit
Do you spend too much time sitting? You aren’t alone! Research shows that being sedentary outside of purposeful physical activity (for example, running or going to the gym) raises your risk of developing many serious health conditions, including coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colon cancers. This presentation will provide information on ways to increase your daily physical activity and lower your risk for serious health conditions.

You’re Born with Your Birthday Suit: Take Care of It 

Weighing in at roughly eight pounds and covering about 22 square feet, your skin is the body’s largest organ. It serves many life-sustaining functions including protecting you from the outside world and maintaining your body temperature. Many skin changes are just a normal part of the aging process. However, others can signal health problems. This program not only explains the differences between normal skin changes and warning signs, but offers complimentary head/neck skin cancer screenings provided by our experts!

Foodie Duty
Many would agree that eating is one of the great pleasures of life and a key component of many of our social interactions. However, many people consume more calories than they actually need. That’s why nearly 69 percent of U.S adults 20 and older are overweight or obese. Being obese increases your risk for heart disease, diabetes and other serious illnesses. Meal planning and prep can help you and your family maintain a healthy weight, prevent chronic disease and boost your energy levels. The information presented will provide participants with knowledge on nutrition and meal ideas for all ages!

It’s All Relative
Family members share a lot of physical characteristics: hair color, eye color, being tall (or short. Additionally, families also share risks for certain diseases, such as heart disease. Family history puts you at a greater risk for certain diseases that are genetically inherited, even though most are not due sorely to genetics. Join us as a WellStar Medical Group professional guides you to achieving a complete picture of your hereditable health risks.
