Wellness Workshops

Healthcare heroes from the community and health/wellness fields have been carefully chosen for the purpose of giving you plenty to learn and practice. We are covering all topics that keep women up at night, from protecting our children and caring for aging parents to those darn night sweats!

Super Mom Mania: Protecting Your Children

9:30 a.m. & 1 p.m.

Every Supermom’s top priority is protecting her children! We’ve got two great classes that will guide moms of young children and teens on dangers to watch for and how to best shield your kids from harm. We’ll cover topics like stranger danger, hot cars, concussion, social media safety, bullying, sex trafficking, depression and more. A mother’s job is not for the faint of heart, but we’re here to keep you in the know and make you the guardians of your galaxy.

The Age of Change

9:30 a.m. & 1 p.m.

Any warrior of womanhood knows that managing menopause takes true super powers. We’re here to offer some helpful hints on how to best navigate the hormotional metamorphosis every Superwoman must face. We’ll have experts on hand to talk honestly about how to fight back against hot flashes, hormones, bladder control, mood swings, sex drive, insomnia, brain fog and more. Together we can learn to be avengers of “the change.”

Role Reversal: Caring for Aging Parents

9:30 a.m. & 1 p.m.

For most of our lives our parents are our superheroes that seem immortal, but age eventually takes its toll and we find that we need supernatural strength to now care for them. It’s important to arm yourself with knowledge and resources so that you can make good decisions for everyone. Come learn from our panel of experts about signs and symptoms of dementia, having hard conversations, transitioning power, when to seek outside help, and the importance of taking good care of yourself while taking care of others.

Emergency Response

1 p.m.

When emergencies happen the soundtrack of our lives shifts quickly to The Clash singing “Should I stay or should I go?” It’s hard to know if we need to rush to the emergency room or if it’s ok to wait to see your primary care doctor. Since regenerative healing superpowers are very rare, GMC’s Emergency Services Director will give us great guidance on when to dial 911, dash to the ER, go to an urgent clinic or take an aspirin and call the doctor in the morning.

Obstacles of Weight Loss

9:30 a.m. & 1 p.m.

Managing weight-loss takes physical, mental and emotional strength and a team of allies to help you navigate the journey. Come hear from the experts at GMC’s Center for Weight Management about the many options available to managing your weight and how to best overcome the mental blocks and challenges that get in the way of your progress.

Aches & Pains or Warning Signs

9:30 a.m.

We Superwomen take a beating each day and often ignore the signs and symptoms our bodies send us when we start to wear down. But let’s be real – it’s hard to know if it’s a simple ache or pain from the daily grind or if it’s something we really need to get checked out. Come learn how to better gauge what’s a twinge or a major warning sign that we need not ignore. This session could be lifesaving!

Nutrition Know How

9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 12: 15 p.m. & 1 p.m. 

Superwomen are most often the overseers of the family kitchen. When a health condition strikes like diabetes, heart disease or celiac it’s hard to know how to adjust your eating, shopping, and cooking habits to ensure you are doing just as the doctor ordered. Enjoy live, healthy cooking demonstrations, while learning important tips on how to read labels, foods to draw to or avoid, guidelines for calorie and nutrient intakes, and so much more. You’re sure to have your fan base raving about your new culinary delights.
