On June 12
Margaret Mary Community Hospital will be hosting its 12th annual
Speaking of Womens Health conference. It will be held from
7 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Batesville High School. The event provides
local women with a hot breakfast, free health screenings, a keynote
presentation, two breakout sessions and a gift bag.
This years keynote speaker is Cincinnati Local 12 news anchor
Cammy Dierking. During her presentation, Dierking will help attendees
learn to identify their goals and find the time and motivation
to meet those goals. By sharing her life experiences, Dierking
teaches the audience how to work through fear, take risks and
enjoy life to its fullest.
Born and raised in Cincinnati, Dierking is known for her sunny
disposition, boundless energy and big smile. She especially enjoys
speaking to womens groups about health and wellness issues
and is very active herself. In fact, shes an avid cyclist,
has finished 10 marathons and has even completed a full Triathalon,
which combines swimming, bicycling and running.
In addition to Dierkings keynote presentation, event participants
will attend two breakout sessions where they may choose topics
most relevant to them. Breakout presentations range from heart
health and physical fitness to skin care and coping with stress.
Again this year, health screenings will be available to attendees,
free of charge. Screenings include cholesterol, blood pressure,
thyroid, osteoporosis and body mass index (BMI).
