'Just for Women' wellness event

Perham Health invites all area women to its annual Just for Women wellness night on Tuesday, Oct. 16.

The event is free and will feature experts on a variety of hot topics specific to women's health. It will take place from 5-8 p.m. at New Creation Church, 295 West Coney Street in Perham.

More than 25 booths and screenings will be offered from 5-6:15 p.m., including education on disease management, heart attack and stroke awareness and prevention, urinary incontinence, osteoporosis, hypertension, and immunizations. Relax with a massage offered by Perham Health massage therapists. A light meal will be available during this time, as well.

From 6:15-7 p.m., a panel of Perham Health medical providers will answer frequently asked questions they hear from women. Sitting on the panel will be Drs. Joshua Chapman, Andrea Westby, Sonja Lien and Tim Studer.

Back by popular demand will be keynote speaker Deadra Stanton.

Stanton entertained attendees at the first Just for Women event four years ago. She will entertain her audience with a presentation titled, "Fines Double in Road Construction." If this year's presentation is anything like her first, you will not want to miss it.

Just for Women is free to attend but registration is appreciated. Register at or call 347-1303.
