Although the primary goal of Spirit Girls’ Night Out programs are to educate women about making well informed decisions about their health, it is the action steps that follow that are the real reward. In 2011, 43 percent of attendees made an appointment with a healthcare provider as a result of something that they learned. “These events allow women to come together in a trusted healthcare environment for information presented in an empowering format,” said Tanya Abreu, President and National Program Director, Spirit of Women Hospital Network. “When you present this education in a dazzling way, women leave ready to activate change that can positively impact their lives and the lives of their families.”
Spirit Girls’ Night Out is in its seventh year and gaining momentum with over 75 hospitals in cities all over the US working toward the same goal – inspiring and empowering women to be okay with themselves and encourage action over their health and the health of their families.
The core of Spirit Girls’ Night Out is increasing awareness and fueling action!
Health education, health screenings and fun activities will be woven throughout the three-hour evening. This “don’t miss” event will be held at Lake Hickory Country Club from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. Cost of admission is $10.
