Get involved with "Healthy Woman" club and anniversary event

Between work, kids and keeping the home from falling apart - women are stretched in more directions today than ever before.  That can lead to stress, sleeplessness and neglecting your overall well-being.

The free "Healthy Woman" club through Women and Children's Hospital in Lake Charles is a resource to hook you up with health events, tips and educational classes with other women to encourage you along the way.  "It is very important for women to take care of themselves," said Patricia Philmon with the Healthy Woman Advisory Council.  "We are the caregivers of our families, so we need to make sure we're taking time for ourselves and becoming healthier each day."

There is a day set aside to do just that, with the second anniversary event for Healthy Woman.

The event is open to every woman and will include a health fair, expo, dinner and a humorous motivational speaker hitting on the topics close to women's hearts.  "Kelly Swanson is our speaker," said Healthy Woman coordinator, Nadia Nazeer, "she will talk about how to manage stress, change and how to recognize negative mindsets and what you should do to balance your life between the life that you envision and the life that you have now."

The anniversary event will be Thursday, September 6th at L'auberge Casino-Resort. Tickets are $20 and include access to the health fair, vendor expo and dinner.

The topic for the night is "Who Hijacked My Fairy Tale?" and will give a fun twist on creating a healthier ever after.
