The seventh anniversary of Healthy Woman, a resource of SkyRidge Medical Center, will take place Tuesday, Sept. 10, at Peerless Road Church with Lisa Smartt, author, as keynote speaker.

The anniversary will kick off with a Women’s Expo from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and Smartt will speak at 7 p.m., followed by door prizes.

Smartt’s presentation, “I thought I was a ‘People Person’ ... Until I started Working with People,” explores the question, “Why doesn’t everyone think like me?”

Sometimes it helps to laugh about our interaction with others while journeying toward solutions. This humorous presentation offers practical and pivotal life skills to turn our relationships in a more positive direction.

Ticket price of $15 will include admission to the expo, heavy hors d’oeuvres and presentation. Tickets must be purchased in advance by Monday, Aug. 26.

Attendees must have a ticket for admission and cannot be purchased at the door.

Tickets are available at SkyRidge Medical Center’s main campus cashier’s desk; Red Ribbon, Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce; and SkyRidge’s Outpatient Therapy desk at The Y.
