Think Beyond Pink conference at library set for Saturday


Think Beyond Pink — a women’s breast health and wellness conference hosted by Beebe Healthcare’s Women’s & Children’s Services and Tunnell Cancer Center — is set to take place on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 9 a.m. to noon at the South Coastal Library in Bethany Beach.

“Think Beyond Pink is a day aimed at bringing women in our community together to focus on their health and wellness,” said Judith Ramirez, manager of Oncology Population Health at Tunnell Cancer Center.

“Women in particular often face the difficulty of making time for self-care due to pressures and demands of word, family and community. At this event, you will be empowered to make lasting changes for a happier and healthier life, and connect in conversation with Beebe physicians and other health resource partners.”

The conference is free to attend, but registration is required. RSVP online at ThinkBeyondPink2018.eventbrite.com.

Event speakers will discuss: health issues women may encounter with aging and menopause; women’s cardiac health; developing a wellness practice and yoga; connecting with women in the community and learning ways to take charge of one’s health.

Attendees can also take part in yoga, wellness activities, free health information and community resources and giveaways.
