    “Empowering Our Sisters: Our Journey to Wellness”

    The fourth annual health and wellness summit, “Empowering Our Sisters: Our Journey to Wellness”,will be held on Saturday, April 15, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the John H. Ammon Medical Education Center located at Christiana Hospital in Newark, DE. Again, the health summit seeks to empower women and girls to take control of their health by promoting the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. There is a pressing need within our community to elevate awareness of the physical and mental health issues that women and young ladies, ages 11 and over, are facing.

    The Summit will focus on health and wellness – body, mind and spirit, with an emphasis on prevention (nutrition, fitness and holistic wellness), chronic disease management (cardiovascular, diabetes, and cancer), mental and emotional wellness, healthy living and lifestyle changes.

    A healthy continental breakfast, registration and health screenings will begin at 8:00 a.m. Workshops, sessions and drawings for prizes will occur throughout the day. A free lunch will also be provided. If you need transportation, please email us at phmh@dstwilmingtonde.org.

    Parking: To park, follow signs to Lot-T. Guest parking will only be in Lot-T. A free shuttle will pick you up from Lot-T and drop you off at the John H. Ammon Medical Education Center. It will return you to Lot-T after the event.
