Extensive benefits of exercise, topic of tonight’s Ladies Night Out

At this evening’s Ladies Night Out Program, the topic will be Women’s Health and Fitness. Guest speaker will be Patti Abel, Abel Wellness. Regular exercise reduces the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer as well as reduces the risk of having a stroke. Studies show that regular exercise is one of the best things you can do for your mind and you have a better sense of well-being following a workout. Come learn with us how you can keep your mind sharp and improve your mood at this month’s Ladies Night Out.

Ladies Night Out is a partnership between Macon County Public Health and Angel Medical Center to provide free monthly programs on a variety of health topics for women with an emphasis on the importance of regular health screenings. The Franklin Bi-Lo and Fatz of Franklin are corporate sponsors of the programs and provide snacks and door prizes each month. Dodge Packaging Specialties, Inc. provides paper products and Indian Hills Spring Water provides bottled water.

This program will be held two times this date in the cafeteria at AMC. One will be at 4:00 p.m. and one will be at 6:30 p.m., so you can choose which one you want to attend. The same presentation will be given at both meetings. All women are invited to attend one of these meetings and are asked to encourage all the women in their life, who are over the age of 13 years, to attend with them.
