ST. GEORGE – A trio of local women health care professionals will speak on “Gift Yourself Health” at the Dec. 1 holiday luncheon of the St. George branch of the American Association of University Women, or AAUW.

The luncheon will begin at 11 a.m. with food served at 11:30 a.m. at the Courtyard by Marriott, 185 S. 1470 E., in St. George. Festive dress and jolly attitudes are encouraged.

The happiness in reaching out and achieving true community with others will be emphasized by Lolita Hagio, who holds a Bachelor of Science in nursing and is a vocational rehab specialist. Hagio will also launch a “Santa to a Sister” campaign which includes a gift drive for two St. George assisted-living facilities, Emeritus at Cliff View and Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation.

Terri Kane, administrator and CEO of Dixie Regional Medical Center, will provide a “State of the State” update and preview of future plans for the medial center, in particular the wellness initiatives that she said are her personal passion.

Terri Koenig, a gerontologist/certified health and wellness coach at Dixie Regional’s LiVe Well Center, will describe the many full-life fitness services offered at the LiVe Well Center. She will conclude the luncheon by leading the audience in basic mind/ body exercises that can be easily incorporated into daily living.

The membership meeting and luncheon is open to the public. Seating is $16 and reservations are needed by Nov. 25. Click this link to make your reservation online.
