In Celebration of the 16th Annual National Women's Health Week

The Still Hope Foundation and ARDX Partner to Present

Whether you are a professional, primary breadwinner, or a stay-at-home mom, every woman deserves a little ‘me time.’ As women, we are natural nurturers—often placing our own needs on the backburner for the sake of our families and those we care about. But you matter too…and so does your health! To that end, we invite you to join the Still Hope Foundation, in partnership with ARDX, for a two-day Women’s Wellness Retreat scheduled for May 15th and 16th, during the 16th Annual National Women's Health Week. The featured presenter will be Dr. Robin L. Smith, psychologist, author, and frequent contributor to Oprah Winfrey's media.

This Women’s Wellness event will help and inspire women like you to make positive changes in every aspect of your life. Throughout this two-day retreat, we will give you opportunities to focus on yourself—mind, body and spirit—as we address some of the physical, emotional and financial disparities that exist among females in a fun, interactive and relaxed environment. Highlights include Saturday’s luncheon keynote speaker—Dr. Robin L. Smith, who is a formidable health expert, and gifted, down-to-earth presenter.

Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve planned… just for you!
