Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center will host its ninth annual
Women’s Health Day, on Saturday, Oct. 14, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at
the SteamPlant Event Center, 220 West Sackett Ave., Salida. Registration
for the event will be open until Monday, Oct. 9.
This year’s keynote speaker, Jana Stanfield, combines a background
as a television reporter with her talent as a multiplatinum songwriter,
musician and humorist, to deliver a one-of-a-kind keynote concert filled
with fun and laughter that focuses on coping with change in an ever-changing world.
Known as the Queen of Heavy MENTAL, Stanfield’s music has been described
as “psychotherapy you can dance to.” Attendees will leave
this keynote address with improved coping skills that can be applied for
stress reduction, endorphin elevation, and mental-health maintenance.
In addition to the keynote presentation, attendees may choose between seven
sessions throughout the day. Topics include “Tame the Pain,”
“Stress Busters,” “Ask the Doctor,” “Preventing
Heart Disease,” and “Who Knew Growing Older Would Be Like
The day ends with a choice of interactive sessions including “Healthy
Smoothies,” and “Golden Yoga.”
