Gold Coast Explorer since Jan 2010. Always on the lookout for fun, family things to enjoy with my four kids.
Empowering Women with Health Knowledge
The Women's Wellness Series, launched on the Gold Coast in 2013, is back with a schedule of Wellness Talks throughout 2014. Aimed at empowering women with the knowledge to deal with common health issues, the talks cover a variety of topics from Stress Management to Thyroid Dysfunction.
These presentations are the result of collaboration between Dr. Kate Shapland (GC GP) and Rita Teixeira (Naturopath). Both are committed to bridging the gap between modern medicine and complimentary health care. The events are open to women of all ages and encourage informed discussion.
The 2014 schedule comprises of the following dates and topics:
Fri 28 March Children's Eating Habits and How It Affects Behaviour
Friday 30 May Learn How to Manage Stress
Friday 25 July The Truth About Addiction
Friday 22 August Living with Thyroid Dysfunction
Friday 31 October End IBS Naturally (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
Friday 28 November Find Your Christmas Cheer
Having attended the Quit Sugar & Still Enjoy Tasty Food! (2013 talk from the first series), I went away armed with more information, suggested further reading and lots to think about. Sharing of information was the key for me on my journey to healthier food choices, which my family has also benefitted from. I firmly believe in the adage "Knowledge is Power". You are responsible for your own health. One of the secrets to good health, I have discovered, is to find qualified professionals, from a variety of avenues, to assist you along the way.
The venue is the same as last year - Mudgeeraba Memorial Hall. Enter via the side, the room is in the lower level of the hall. If you are there early, you should be able to park outside the hall. Otherwise, drive up behind the library on the opposite side of the Village Green. There's also parking near Woolworths.
The session costs $20pp, which includes light refreshments, and is held on Friday mornings, monthly, between 10am and 12 noon. Phone Kerry on 07 5525 2211 to reserve your place.
Be enlightened, empower yourself. You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
