BALDWIN, WI – Western Wisconsin Health (WW Health) held its annual women’s health event on Thursday, October 25 with over 100 participants. This year’s Women’s Wellness Expo focused on general women’s health and included a variety of activities. Guests were able to obtain information about our providers, services and care partners, shop with many unique local vendors, enjoy complimentary healthy local refreshments from The Eatery at WW Health and receive giveaways.

The ladies had opportunities to be entered in drawings to win prizes including a Himalayan salt lamp, special edition rose gold Fitbit, a photography session with Suzanne Wynveen Photography, and gift certificates for the WW Health Fitness Center and integrative health services.

The visitors also had the chance to meet providers from our health and wellness team and attend presentations from OB-GYN Dr. Steven Verbeek and Certified Nurse Midwife Karli Rae Kerrschneider regarding women’s health, our new Healing Touch Practitioner Mary Bauer, and participate in a mindful meditation with National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach Lynn Huiskamp.

It was a fun and informative evening at our annual Western Wisconsin Health Women’s Wellness Expo and we thank everyone for coming out and thank everyone involved who made the evening such an enriching experience!
