PIQUA — Jean Heath and Janis Winner of Premier Health Upper Valley Medical Center will be the featured speakers for the Oct. 12 YWCA Monthly Luncheon Series. The program, which is free and open to the public, begins at 11 a.m. followed by a noon luncheon ($6/person).
Reservations must be made by Monday, Oct. 10.
“October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and November is designated as Diabetes Awareness Month so our two speakers will focus on the signs and symptoms of both diseases,” said Beth Royer-Delong, YWCA program director.
Heath is a cancer survivor and director of The Cancer Center at UVMC and will share personal experiences as well as the work at The Cancer Center. Winner is a dietician at UVMC and will offer diet information to prevent the onset of diabetes and/or control of it.
A UVMC nurse will be available from 10:15-11:00 a.m. for free blood pressure and glucose screenings. The YWCA is handicapped-accessible.
Join Marsha Leistner to learn how to make all kinds of bows in this unique class held on two different dates: Monday, Oct. 17, from 6-8 p.m. or Tuesday, Oct. 18, from 1-3 p.m.
“Bows can be used for more than decorating packages,” said Leistner. “I hope to show everyone many different sizes, styles and kinds of bows during the class.”
Participants need to bring a pair of sharp scissors. All other supplies are furnished. Registration and fees must be taken care of by Monday, Oct. 10 to insure placement in the class.
