PLYMOUTH — Women's wisdom and inner strength will be the focus of Speare Memorial Hospital's fifth annual Wine, Women & Wisdom women's health event on Thursday, April 2, at 5 p.m. The event will be held at the Common Man Inn in Plymouth.
Presenters this year are Dr. Erinn Fellner, a psychiatrist with Speare Primary Care, and Leslie Sturgeon, founder of Women Inspiring Women.
Dr. Fellner's presentation is Beyond Medications: Alternative Strategies for managing stress and depression. Stress management was identified by past attendees as the number one topic they would like addressed. Symptoms of chronic stress include anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, digestive problems and weight gain, which can lead to other health problems if left unchecked.
Sturgeon's presentation is titled "Behind the Cape: Lessons learned from a recovering Superwoman." During her talk she will share strategies for how to eliminate the superwoman mindset once and for all.
Tickets are $10 each. Advance ticket purchase is recommended as a limited number will be available at the door. Tickets can be purchased online through www.spearehospital.com, then click the event link, at Speare Memorial Hospital at the reception window in the main entrance lobby, at Dressers Unlimited on Main Street in Plymouth, and Oglethorpe Fine Arts & Crafts at Mill Falls Marketplace in Meredith.
This year's event is being sponsored by Millennium Integrated Marketing.
