Knowledge Is Power: What You Really Need to Know to Take Care of Yourself, Too!

There is an abundance of health-related information available in this digital age – so much so that it’s easy to tune out. But as busy women who put their jobs, children, spouses or parents first and neglect their own well-being, we can’t afford to not pay attention. Go beyond the obvious “eat right and exercise” and hear from medical experts on what really matters to keep yourself healthy in body, mind and spirit, so you can live your best life.
