MT. VERNON — Approximately 400 women made their way to the Holiday Inn Tuesday evening to educate themselves about living a healthy lifestyle and about businesses in the area that support women’s health.

The Healthy Woman expo kicked off Crossroads Community Hospital’s Healthy Woman program and featured dinner, exposition and motivational speaker Suzanne Metzger. The Holiday Inn ballroom was filled with feminine decor and guests enjoyed food, music and an inspirational speech.

Participants were not only able to sign up for the free Healthy Woman program, which features monthly activities aimed at women’s health, but also learned about local businesses that offer services for women.

“Research shows that women are eager for health information and wellness information,” said Debi Richardson, director of marketing and public relations for Crossroads.

And that wellness not only includes physical heath, Richardson said, but financial, spiritual and emotional health as well. Crossroad’s new program, which focuses on women between the ages of 25 to 54 age group, is meant to nourish all of those aspects of women and their families.

One of the women in attendance was Tiffanie Krewiecki, whose employer Physicians Filing Series hosted a booth at the event.

Krewiecki said having events, like this, is great for women because it allows them to gather together, enjoy themselves, and to focus strictly on themselves.

“There is nothing just for women,” Krewiecki said.

Crossroad’s free, monthly series will feature free seminars, health fairs, educational programs, and events focusing on women.

The monthly presentations will cover physical and emotional health care as well as financial well being and spiritual development, according to Richardson. The next event is scheduled for June 20 and is titled “A New Summer You.”

The program is being coordinated by Richardson and Heather Burkett, Crossroads’ marketing assistant.
