Strong Women Strong Hearts set for Feb. 8
SYRACUSE, N.Y.— Upstate University Hospital will host its the third annual Strong Women Strong Hearts (SWSH) celebration, a free day of education, entertainment, and indulgence to be held on Saturday Feb. 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at HealthLink OASIS Learning Center, 6333 Rt. 298, East Syracuse.
The event will include health screenings, exercise, nutritional information, heart-healthy tastings, reiki therapy, massage, and yoga. There also will be shopping areas with jewelry, food and other vendors.
In addition, there will also be three presentations offered throughout the day at three different session times, 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. The presentations include: Women and Heart Disease—A Comprehensive Review; Vulnerability and Strength: Integrating and Expressing Both—Focusing on the 4 pillars of Wellness, Nutrition, Physical Exercise, Stress Management and Spiritual: and Non-Traditional Health and Healing
The 2014 Strong Women, Strong Hearts event is presented in conjunction with Empire State College and Upstate Women’s Health Network.
The idea for Strong Women Strong Hearts came about after cardiac nurses at Upstate University Hospital saw a tremendous need to increase and enhance the education women receive about heart disease. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one killer of women, while at the same time only one in five women believe that heart disease is their greatest threat.
As recognition for their efforts in educating women about heart disease and heart health, the nurses of Strong Women Strong Hearts are past recipients of the Central New York Business Journal’s Excellence in Health Care Award.
