October 16 Meeting

This was a great meeting full of info about women's health! Jessica started off the meeting with her "My Mess" story & shared that she has been convicted to start praying for her husband specifically, not just the family as a whole & the situations that they may be facing.
Then Laura Callaway, MSN, CNM, came to speak to us about women's health. She shared about being a Midwife and what a Midwife does ( http://ourmomentoftruth.midwife.org/). She also spoke about our general health and how important exercise and diet are for women. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women ( http://womenshealthresources.nlm.nih.gov/ )! We also got the new guidelines for pap smears and mammograms (www.cdc.gov/cancer/cervical/basic_info/screening.htm, http://ww5.komen.org/breastcancer/breastselfexam.html).
After Laura gave us all that great info we go with our tables to plan for Trunk or Treat on the 30th! We are so excited to see what everyone comes up with!!
