Foundation Celebrates 12th Annual Women Helping Women Events

[gallery link="file" order="DESC"] Pardee Hospital Foundation's Women Helping Women Committee sponsored their 12th annual events on Oct. 15 and 16 at Kenmure County Club. The purpose of both events was to raise funds to provide financial assistance for uninsured women in Henderson County for screenings and treatment services at Pardee Hospital. Since 1998, the Pardee Foundation's Women Helping Women Committee has raised over $1.3 million for equipment, facilities, and services for women. In that time, the funds have helped over 850 women in need. In support of Pardee Hospital's strategic plan to expand their women's health services, Women Helping Women has extended its focus this year to include breast cancer as well as other women's cancers, heart disease, osteoporosis and other critical women's health needs. This year's featured speaker, Dr. Holly Atkinson, is the author of the best-selling book "Women and Fatigue" and a former medical correspondent for NBC's TODAY show and The CBS Morning News.  She is an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Medicine at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine.  Her presentation was titled, The 5 Keys to Maximum Health... the ways to achieve maximum health in our busy lives. This year's events raised over $110,700. The generosity of 95 sponsors and numerous supporters helps us continue to help one woman at a time.
