St. Claire Regional (SCR) and UK HealthCare’s One Night: About You women’s health conference was a huge success! The event, held Tuesday, April 19, at the Morehead Conference Center, boasted its largest audience yet since it began four years ago, with more than 180 women in attendance.

The evening kicked off with free health screenings and informational booths, followed by a spiritual presentation by Kimberly Williams, M.D., retired SCR physician, titled “Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: What is Beauty?” Williams talked about self-esteem and encouraged women to hold themselves up to standards beyond what they see when they look in the mirror.

“The keynote speaker was exceptional,” one attendee commented. “I would love to hear her again!”

Other speakers at the event for the breakout health education sessions included SCR General Surgeon Jacob Perry, M.D., who spoke about SCR’s surgery center; UK OB/GYN Rebecca Todd, M.D., and Corey Forester, M.D., who talked about the topics of breast health, gynecological exams and menopause; and SCR Internal Medicine Physician Stephen Damron, M.D., who educated attendees on the risk factors of stroke. Attendees also had the opportunity to attend a session to learn an easy, 15 minute workout routine, courtesy of SCR physical and occupational therapy.

Hundreds of dollars in door prizes were given away during the course of the evening, including a variety of gift cards, gift baskets and a Michael Kors tote and clutch, valued at nearly $300. Donors included St. Claire Regional, UK HealthCare, SCR Gift Shop, SCR Family Medical Supply, SCR Rehabilitation Services, PHI, Dillard’s, Macy’s, Cracker Barrel, iStyle Salon and Melodie Hoff, licensed massage therapist.
