“As women, we are often so focused on taking care of our family needs that we put our own needs aside,” said Marilyn Margolis, the hospital’s CEO. “This free community event gives women an opportunity to meet with doctors to check on themselves and learn ways to lead healthier lives and be role models for their families.”

The event will also feature a vendor expo showcasing local retailers offering beauty and fitness tips and a chance to enter drawings to win raffle prizes. Desserts and beverages will be served.
