WEATHERFORD, TX (April 20, 2012) -Weatherford Regional Medical Center has announced the names of eight women who will lead the advisory council for the hospital’s Healthy Woman program.
Healthy Woman features a monthly series of free seminars, health fairs, education programs and interactive events focusing on women.
“The women who make up this council are leaders in our community in a variety of ways,” said Weatherford Regional Medical Center chief executive officer Cory Countryman. “Through their civic, volunteer and community involvement, these diverse women are ambassadors for other women in their leadership roles, proactive community interest and progressive thinking.”
The Healthy Woman Advisory Council includes: Lisa Flowers, Tammy Gazzola, Jessica Hals, D.O., Charlotte LaGrone, Angie Martin, Shirley Smelley, Michelle Tompkins and Lyn Walsh.
“These women will provide guidance to ensure that the issues that concern the women of area get addressed by Hospital,” said Countryman.
Women, who make between 80 and 90 percent of all healthcare decisions, often balance careers, primary and secondary families, issues with parents, and civic work. Healthy Woman was created by women for women to provide up-to-date healthcare information for the entire family. The mission of the program is to empower women with the knowledge and confidence to make informed healthcare and well-being decisions for themselves and their loved ones.
The free monthly presentations will cover physical and emotional healthcare, as well as financial well-being and spiritual development. Healthcare topics will include pertinent information on heart disease, diabetes, breast cancer, menopause, nutrition, osteoporosis, stress management and life balance issues.
The next Healthy Woman seminar will be held on May 24 at Weatherford Regional Medical Center from noon to 1:00 p.m. To register for this free event or for more information about Healthy Woman, please visit WeatherfordRegional.com or call 817-341-PINK (7465).
