A night for women’s health

With hors d’oeuvres and a focus on health topics specifically for women, St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is hosting “Amazing Woman: Be Your Best Self” on Thursday, April 5 from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at U.S. Airways Center.

The “Amazing Woman” event will have six breakout sessions covering all sorts of topics from headaches, healthy weight, and digestion to dealing with stress, being a successful caregiver and the newest hysterectomy treatments.

Keynote speaker is Abby Rike, a former contestant on “The Biggest Loser.” After Rike lost her husband and two children in a car crash in 2006, she decided to search for healing on NBC’s reality show in 2009. Her 2011 book, Working It Out: A Journey of Love, Loss, and Hope, starts with her life before the accident and documents her steps to recovery from traumatic loss.

The event is $15 and parking is free. To register, call ResourceLink at 1-877-602-4111. — Amy Vogelsang
