2014 Wellness Program

Part of the April 26 FUNdraiser, 6:00-8:00pm

We are excited that we will have a room full of health professionals that will be generously donating their time at this year's "Wellness Program".

Please come early to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to ask questions and engage in an informal dialogue with experts representing a wide range of specialty areas and interests!

Special Guest Speaker!
We are so happy to report that Dr. Beth Brady has accepted our invitation to be our guest speaker again this year. She will give her talk around 6:30 so arrive early if you don’t want to miss her! Her topic has yet to be decided so we are looking for suggestions. What do you want to know about breast health? What needs to be clarified? What topic concerns you the most? What are you and your friends talking about, wondering about? Email your topic suggestions to and put “What’s up, Doc?” in the subject line. We’ll make sure Dr. Brady uses your input when selecting her topic. This is your chance to get straight talk, girlfriend to girlfriend.
