Lakeview Regional Medical Center and the Junior League of Greater Covington Host Annual Girls Health Day
Free health screenings and demonstrations to be held on site.
New Orleans, Louisiana (PRWEB) January 13, 2016
Lakeview Regional Medical Center, in collaboration with the Junior League of Greater Covington, will host its annual Girls Health Day on Saturday, January 23rd from 10am until 12pm on the Lakeview Regional Medical Center campus. The theme “Be Healthy. Be Happy. Be You.” incorporates the topics of health issues for girls aged 8 – 14. This year’s health talks and demonstrations will include: social media and internet safety, Zumba, puberty and changes to expect, bullying and seat belt safety presented by Louisiana State Troopers, and a simulated surgical activity with a Da Vinci robot.
“Girls Health Day is designed as a platform for mothers and daughters to grow closer while learning more about healthy living,” states Dr. Brandee Simon-Davis, Girls Health Day organizer and physician at Lakeview Regional Medical Center. “When girls are given the tools they need to be strong at a young age, they are empowered to make responsible and healthy choices.”
Other activities will include free health screenings (blood pressure checks, BMI measurements, and vision testing) by local physicians, skin cancer and sun protection tips, and door prizes and giveaways.
