|North Dakota Women's Health Connection is Sept. 19|
You are cordially invited to attend the North Dakota Women's Health Connection.
The Department of Family & Community Medicine's National Center of Excellence in Women's Health will host our annual Women's Health Connection on Saturday, Sept. 19 at the UND Memorial Union. The free event, "Nourishing Your Body and Soul," runs from 8 a.m. to noon. Free parking will be available in designated areas.
Grand Forks' native Patty Purpur, a nationally recognized health and fitness expert, will deliver the keynote address. The Women's Health Connection is a life-affirming and educational experience for women and girls, 10 years and older, to learn more about how best to take care of themselves. This year’s breakout sessions include bone health, nutrition, legal health, dance, and the spirit.
Purpur exemplifies an extraordinary commitment to fitness and health, personally and professionally. Patty was a state champion athlete at Red River High School in Grand Forks and at Stanford University where she went on to become an Olympic Trials discus qualifier and nine-time NCAA All-American track athlete. Among many other activities, Patty currently serves on the California Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.
Numerous sponsors and exhibitors will be on hand at booths to distribute information and answer participants' questions. Door prizes and complimentary tote bags will be presented to the first 300 registrants. A continental breakfast will be provided.
Pre-registration is encouraged. For information, phone 777-3274 or check online at www.med.und.nodak.edu.
