Riverview hosts women’s health event


By Mark Ambrogi

Riverview Heath’s Women’s Health & Wellness Event will have a new format and location this year.

“In past years, we held this event onsite at the hospital,” said Christin Barber, Riverview marketing/communications coordinator. “This year, it will be at our Rehab and Fitness facility in Noblesville, which is right next door to our main campus. Since a big part of this event is to promote healthy living, it made sense to showcase our facility that offers fitness programs and equipment and is also open to the public with a membership.”

The event is set from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 17 at 601 Westfield Rd., Noblesville.

“Another change for this event this year is that we’ve included several kid-friendly activities, including a fashion show hosted by Lil Bloomers boutique in Noblesville,” Barber said. “We wanted to make it convenient for those women who have kids and would like to bring them along to learn about health together. We welcome moms to bring kids of all ages to the event. We’ll have face painting and touch-a-truck that are geared toward the younger kids, and a kid’s obstacle course for the older ones. There will also be kid-friendly snacks to sample.”

The Lil Bloomers kids’ fashion show is at 10 a.m. Presentations and Q&A will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. There will be presentations from pediatrician Dr. Evan Kreutzer, registered dietitian Brittany Nelson and cardiologist Dr. Emily Ruden.

“We designed this event to really inspire women of all ages to live healthy and balanced lives,” Barber said. “For many women, there are several things to consider when it comes to managing their health as well as their family’s, including wellness, nutrition, heart health and pediatric health. We wanted to provide information on all these topics at one convenient location.”

The first 50 attendees will receive a swag bag with coupons and giveaways. All attendees will be entered into free drawings to win raffle prizes.
