Event held in conjunction with National Women’s Health Week

    Women from as far away as Park Rapids enjoyed RiverView’s 11th annual Women’s Fest event on Tuesday.

    Attendees listened to Physical Therapist Lindsey Ebertowski explain the benefits of anti-inflammatory exercise and Dietitian Darcey Larsen educated the group on the benefits of an anti-inflammatory diet.

    The event’s healthy food went along with the anti-inflammatory theme. Free blood pressure and A1C screenings were also offered, as well as information on RiverView classes and services.

    Women’s Fest is held in recognition of National Women’s Health Week, May 13 to May 19. The focus of the recognition is to empower women to make their health a top priority by taking steps to improve their physical and mental health and lower their risks of certain diseases. It’s also a great time to remind women to schedule their annual well-woman visits.
