Each year The Medical Center presents its women's conference, A Day Just for Women. This day-long conference gives women the opportunity to gather and learn about pertinent health issues, be inspired by motivational speakers and enjoy the company of other women. Women walk away from the conference empowered to make changes in their lives, armed with tools to help them.
Throughout the day, participants visit exhibit booths on subjects of interest to women and take advantage of free health screenings and information related to women's health. Individual seating as well as corporate tables are available.
Next event date: September 11, 2014
Time: 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Location: Knicely Conference Center, WKU South Campus
This year's event will feature motivational speaker Tami West, Ph.D. who will present "Just Who Do You Think You Are?". Too often, a wide gap exists among who you think you are, who you want to be, and who others think you are. You will learn the secret connection between identity and language and understand why you use words and gestures the way you do and how to make changes if you truly want to.
West will also present "Plays Well with Others." You live and work with a wide range of people: friends, spouses, bosses, parents, and colleagues to name a few. Sometimes these people can be passive, aggressive, loud, inconsiderate...the list could go on. During this session, you will learn to become a woman who plays well with others.
Cardiologist Alison Bailey, M.D. will present "Update in Women’s Cardiovascular Health and Prevention: What You Need to Know." Dr. Bailey will identify key prevention components such as good nutrition and regular exercise and the need to implement a healthy lifestyle to prevent cardiovascular disease. She will discuss the latest research on heart disease in women and provide an update on hormone replacement therapy. You will learn how men and women can be affected by heart disease in different ways.
