UK HealthCare, in collaboration with the Center for the Advancement of Women's Health, presented its fourth annual Women, It's About You half-day wellness conference Saturday, June 2, at Embassy Suites in Lexington. This year's event was a terrific success with nearly 300 women of all ages attending from throughout the Bluegrass Region.

The ladies heard informative and entertaining presentations from an impressive lineup of UK HealthCare's expert physician and clinical speakers. Diverse topics-designed to help women take charge of their health-included memory and aging, gynecology, nutrition, allergies and breathing, oral health, eye health, heart health, diabetes and much more.

A highlight of the conference was an exhibitor showcase featuring free health screenings, free chair massages, and a variety of products and services for women from business and organizations throughout Central Kentucky. We appreciate those vendors tremendously for helping us create a fun, relaxed and educational setting for our guests.

Special thanks also goes to Dr. Leslie Crofford, chief of rheumatology and women's health and director of the Center for the Advancement of Women's Health, for again chairing the conference and serving as emcee and host for the day.
