‘New Directions for Women Health Luncheon’ to share insights on stress
Dr. Heidi Hanna, a bestselling author and health consultant, will identify the effects of stress on women’s health and describe ways to combat it at the “New Directions for Women Health Luncheon” March 4 at the Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club in Boca Raton. The luncheon benefits National Jewish Health, a leading respiratory hospital and pioneer in personalized medicine for heart and lung diseases.
The “New Directions for Women Health Luncheon” will be hosted by the Southeastern Regional Office of National Jewish Health, located in Boca Raton. In its first two years, the luncheon has raised more than $100,000 to support women’s heart and lung health programs at National Jewish Health.
The physicians and researchers at National Jewish Health are experts in heart and lung diseases that affect women. The luncheon will focus on raising funds to support the institution’s work to deliver compassionate care and conduct cutting-edge research into these diseases that are affecting millions of women worldwide.
In 2013, Floridians visited the National Jewish Health campus for care more than 1,000 times. The institution also provided more than $253,000 in charity care to Florida residents during that time.
