MMCH offers health event to women

On June 12 Margaret Mary Community Hospital will be hosting its 12th annual Speaking of Women’s 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 year’s 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 women’s groups about health and wellness issues and is very active herself. In fact, she’s an avid cyclist, has finished 10 marathons and has even completed a full Triathalon, which combines swimming, bicycling and running.

In addition to Dierking’s 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).
Ticket request forms are available online at or by calling Ashley Morris at 812-933-5257. The cost to attend is $25.00.
