DeSoto Chamber and Methodist Charlton Medical Center team up for Health!
(DeSoto, Texas) – The community is invited to the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce’ 5th annual Health & Wellness Conference on Wednesday, Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Methodist Charlton Medical Center, 3500 W. Wheatland Road, Dallas, Texas.
Registration opens at 9:30 in the Bed Tower lobby of Methodist Charlton. A panel discussion on Childhood Obesity will begin at 10:00 a.m. Panelists will be community leaders Lesa Ansell, DC, Tammy Beaumont, RN and Jill Waggoner, MD.
The keynote speaker for the luncheon portion of the conference is The Mind Spa’s Larry Washington, M.S. L.P.C. Immediately following the luncheon will be a panel discussion on Senior Care, with panelists Michael D. Williams, DO, John McNair, Attorney-at-Law and Tammy White of Senior Source.
“Both these issues concern employers and business owners in our community”, said Cammy Jackson, president of the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center. “Employees request time off to care for their elderly parents, or to take their children to doctor’s appointments due to illnesses associated with obesity, and both these situations result in rising healthcare costs”. Belinda Smith, chair of the Health & Wellness Conference committee indicated that everyone can learn something from this conference.
Vendors participating in this year’s conference include Medical Sleep Solutions, Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital, Arbor House DeSoto and several departments from Methodist Charlton Medical Center; the nutrition staff at Methodist Charlton will conduct several cooking demonstrations for a healthy lifestyle.
Admission to the event is $25, which includes lunch. Vendor space is available beginning at $100. For more information on this event, or to register, please contact Kerin Croft at 972-224-3565 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
