Are you trying to unwind?  Are you trying to keep a positive, realistic attitude?   Both of these questions can lead to stress.  Even though stress is a fact of life, being stressed out is not.  If you have asked yourself these questions, then join us in August 2016 for a Women’s Health Series seminar addressing stress management.

On Tuesday, August 9, 2016, Pam W. King, R.N., registered nurse with Mountain States Health Alliance Health Resources Center, presents “Stress Management Tips.”    Location is the Global Understanding Video Conference Room, Campus Center Building, room 233. Start time is noon. 
  

King will discuss practical tips to help manage your stress.  Techniques to help you relax will be included as well. 

Reservations are required .  To reserve a space for King’s Women’s Health Series seminar, contact the Women’s Resource Center at 423-439-5772.  This seminar is free and open to the public.

Programs & Services

The Center is dedicated to providing seminar and lectures series that explore a wide spectrum of concerns.

Although programs are designed to enrich and enlighten women, they are not limited to this group. Many seminars and lectures will interest the entire campus, community, and regional populations.
