Updated Aug. 5, 2008 – When was the last time you thought about your health, not because you had a problem but, because you just want to be healthy? The BET Foundation wants to help you do just that.
The foundation, along with General Mills, Inc., Honey Nut Cheerios Brand and a host of community agencies and organizations, will show you and thousands of other women how to live healthier during the 2008 Women’s Health Symposiums. This multi-faceted free health event will take place in Houston; Winston-Salem, N.C.; Little Rock, Ark.; and Savannah, Ga. Women, ages 18 and older, are invited to attend.

The symposium is a full day of health education and awareness, starting with fitness classes, health exhibits and local vendors, and continuing throughout the day with a free lunch, free health screenings and seminars featuring local health professionals.
The symposium wraps up with an empowering performance by Grammy-nominated songstress Kelly Price.
Guests will also enjoy collectible door prizes and giveaways. One lucky winner will also go home with two tickets to the taping of BET’s “Celebration of Gospel” in December!
Why Think About Your Health?
National health data show that African Americans continue to be more affected by illness and death than other ethnic Americans. Obesity, diabetes and strokes remain top health concerns for African-American women and their families.
The Women’s Health Symposium will give you practical strategies to help you achieve a healthier lifestyle, as well as reduce obesity and address other chronic health issues. It is an open dialogue to help you understand and assess you own health risks.
The symposium is FREE. Space is limited, so advanced registration is required. For more information and to register, call 1-866-356-7348 or click on the date and location below to get a PDF flyer that provides specific information about each event.
