The Gathering – Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 12th Annual Gathering held last week at Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield. Despite the dense fog advisory covering most of the state, several attendees made the trip from as far away as Green Bay, Madison, Menomonie, Milwaukee, Sparta and St. Germain.

Christine Maghrak, Advance Practice Consultation Liaison Nurse from Ministry kicked off the event welcoming over 120 women to the annual conference which focused on getting back to the basics in the areas of nutrition, physical activity and stress management.

Sue Ann Thompson, Founder and President of the Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation spoke about being an advocate for your own health and well-being. Being a former teacher, she was in her element when she had all the attendees stand up and proceeded to give them a nutrition quiz asking them to sit down when they answered incorrectly.  Only two individuals answered all 8 questions correctly so we were off to a good start teaching individuals something they didn’t know.

The speakers were very knowledgeable and passionate about their topics. Future blogs will look more in depth at the presentations from the event and provide more information on the topics/initiatives. Currently, all of the speaker presentations can be found on our Slideshare page. The frequently requested Smart Meal Restaurant Guide for Wood County is also now available.
