As a woman I am all about anything that can help women become healthier. Let’s face it, sometimes we don’t take the best care of ourselves. It’s a stereotype that we’re always taking care of others and thus forget about ourselves, but seriously, a lot of us are just so busy with our lives on our own.
It doesn’t matter why we’re too busy to be healthy and get to the doctor. What matters is that we change.
On Saturday there will be an event called All About Women: Free Health Resources held from 10am-2pm at Kipp Academy. More than a dozen organizations will be there providing things like pap smears provided by the Tennessee Breast and Cervical Screening Program, bone density, blood pressure and blood sugar screenings performed by the
Vanderbilt Coalition for Healthy Aging, stress reduction techniques led by the Exchange Club, Zumba classes, ways to reduce electric bills demonstrated by the Kilowatt Hour, and more.
Kipp Academy is located at located at 123 Douglas Avenue.
Stay healthy. Tell your friends. Rock.
