The fifth annual health and wellness summit, “Empowering Our Sisters: Our Journey to Wellness”, will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the John Ammon Education Center located at Christiana Hospital in Newark, DE. The health summit seeks to empower women and girls to take control of their health by promoting the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. There is a pressing need within our community to elevate awareness of the physical and mental health issues that women and young ladies, age 11 and over, are facing.
The summit will focus on health and wellness – body, mind and spirit – with an emphasis on prevention ((nutrition, fitness and holistic wellness), chronic disease management (cardiovascular, diabetes, and cancer), mental and emotional wellness, healthy living and lifestyle changes.
Guest speakers include:
- Lisa Thomas-Laury, retired news anchor and author. In addition to sharing her health journey, she will be on hand for a book signing
- Sherita Moses, PhD, Professor, Loyola University and inventor of a new breast cancer fighting process
We are honored to partner once again with Christiana Care Health System as our presenting sponsor and the AARP of Delaware as a co-sponsor.
Registration and health screenings will begin at 8:00 a.m. Educational workshops, sessions and drawings for prizes will begin at 9:00 a.m. and continue throughout the day. A healthy continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Free transportation will be provided from the Christiana Wilmington Hospital to the Ammon Center.
