28 Oct Girls Health Day
Girls Health Day is a one-day series of workshops designed to educate girls aged 8-14 about various issues. Last year’s health talks and demonstrations included: social media and internet safety, Zumba, female health, self-esteem building techniques, cyber bullying, 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. 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 included 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.
The Junior League of Greater Covington is proud to work with Lakeview Regional Hospital to put on this annual event, usually held on the last Saturday in January. This event is free for all to attend.
