A day designed by women for women ages 55+ will become an opportunity to provide healthcare for women in need. The “Educate, Enlighten, Empower” women-only event will take place Saturday, April 29, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Sacred Heart Hospital Conference Center on Ninth Avenue in Pensacola. The fourth annual symposium is being sponsored by Mainstay Financial Group in partnership with Sacred Heart Senior Services. Proceeds from the event will go to Sacred Heart Foundation to help provide healthcare for women in need.
WEAR-TV 3’s Sue Straughn will serve as emcee for the occasion. Keynote speaker will be Dr. Sara Zeff Geber, a certified retirement coach and workshop leader who is a recognized expert in the field of planning for the next phase of life. An organizational psychologist, she specializes in working with those age 55+. Her speech is titled “50-Plus, Minus Kids: The Unique Challenges of Solo-Agers.”
Additional presentations during the event include:
• “Solo Aging and Your Financial Future,” with Annalee Leonard, president, Mainstay Financial Group;
• “Bladder Matters,” with Jamie Thorne, ARNP, a nurse practitioner with Sacred Heart Medical Group; and
