HRRMC Women's Health Day slated for Oct. 14

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 This!”

The day ends with a choice of interactive sessions including “Healthy Smoothies,” and “Golden Yoga.”

Information and online registration for this community wellness event sponsored by Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center are available at Look for the “Women’s Health Day” button on the home page. Space is limited and pre-registration is required by Oct. 9. The $25 cost includes a gourmet lunch catered by Michelle Gapp.
