Crook County women will once again get a little pampering at the second annual Ladies Night Out health fair October 4. This special event will focus on issues in women’s health. Guest speakers include Dr. Ryan Dix, psychologist, Dealing with the Blues Through Every Stage of Life and Lizzi Katz, cancer survivor, Yes, They’re Fake – the Real Ones Tried to Kill Me.
But Ladies Night Out will also be a time for women to relax and socialize. Guests can nibble on hors d’oeuvres while they visit the booths of more than 30 exhibitors, including local athletic clubs, acupuncturists and the Roller City Dolls. Door prizes will be awarded throughout the event. The first 100 people through the door will also receive a free gift.
Sponsored by Crook County CHIP, Pioneer Memorial Hospital, Rimrock Health Alliance and Susan G. Komen for the Cure Oregon and Southwest Washington Affiliate, the women’s health fair is an important public health service in a county that had the highest incidence of breast cancer in the state between 1997 and 2006, according to the Oregon State Cancer Registry.
“Last year, more than 140 women attended the first Ladies Night Out,” said Sharon Vail, CHIP Coordinator. “It was a ton of fun and a great way to educate women about a variety of health topics.”
Ladies Night Out is free and open to women of all ages and from all over Central Oregon. For more information, call 541-233-0706.
