A Focus on Relationships: Avista Hospital’s ‘Inspiration in Women’s Wellness’ Luncheon!

4.29.19

Weifield Chief Business Development Officer, Karla Nugent, was honored to chair the annual Avista Hospital ‘Inspiration in Women’s Wellness’ luncheon again in 2019, which took place on April 23, 2019 at the Westin hotel in Westminster, CO!

The luncheon keynote speaker was author and trainer, Shasta Nelson, who spoke about a health factor more important than treadmills and kale – relationships. She discussed how feeling disconnected is as damaging to our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day, twice as harmful as being obese, and is the equivalent of being a lifelong alcoholic. Her speech energized the audience with research, stories, and Shasta’s groundbreaking work on how to increase the depth in all our relationships.

There were also three health breakout sessions on knee conditions specific to active females, updates in cardiovascular disease, and chronic pain management.

We are honored to support this amazing organization and help in the effort to share health strategies with our community!
