Event description
On October 1st, we will be hosting our first-ever Women's Wellness Symposium, Think Beyond Pink, and we hope you will be able to join us!

About this Event

Yes, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but this fun & exciting event is focused on women's health & wellness overall!

Think Beyond Pink is a day aimed at bringing women in our community together to focus on their health and wellness. Women in particular often face the difficulty of making time for self-care due to pressures and demands of work, 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 physicians and other health resource partners.

This event will feature wellness activities, free health information, community resources, health screenings, giveaways, amazing speakers and more!

At Faith In Action, our mission is to help seniors stay in their homes and neighborhoods that are so near and dear to them for as long as possible, but in order to do so, staying healthy & happy is key! Over 70% of our client base is made up of women, and we want to take this opportunity to focus on them, their health, and the health of women throughout this great community! Please join us on October 1, 2019!
