WellStar’s theme for our 2019 Speaking about Wellness for Women Quarterly Seminar Series is “Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful”. This four-part series is designed to help you celebrate your individuality and provide you with information and tips on how to feel healthy and radiant all year long. Each of us is unique, and that’s what makes us beautiful.

Please plan to attend our Healthy Happy Hours to visit health and wellness education booths. Each Healthy Happy Hour will spotlight a WellStar service line, and give attendees the opportunity to speak to a professional in that field. We will also offer free health screenings as part of our “Get Screened” initiative.

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

Creating a Wellness Plan that Works for You

If you’re looking to make some changes in your life, a wellness plan may be just what the doctor ordered. A wellness plan helps you live a healthy life and increase your personal sense of well-being. By assessing your current health status and deciding what you’d like to change, you can establish specific goals to work toward, and increase the likelihood that your vision becomes a reality. Join us as we kick off the year with a program on how to create a wellness plan and take that first step to a healthier you!

Stress Less

Stress: We all experience it. Not all stress is bad, of course. Training for a marathon, preparing to defend your dissertation, or working toward any other big goal can be a form of healthy stress. However, unmanaged day-to-day aggravations and major life upheavals can eventually take a toll on your health. Join us to learn the difference between good stress and bad stress, and how.

Cooking to Improve Your Health
