(Juneau) Lighten Your Life, the 2019 Focus on Women Resource Fair has been scheduled for April of 2019. An annual day of exhibits, workshops, and information for women, this year’s event is themed “Lighten Your Life” and will provide women with a wealth of information and entertainment through a series of three presentations. The first of the presentations titled “Lighten Up and Reduce Stress” will be presented by professional educator Pattie Carroll, who will present a research-based program offering practical strategies and experiences to help parents, caregivers and community members deal with stress in their daily lives. Attendees will learn how to manage life’s challenges in a healthy way while taking better care of their health and the health of others in their care.
“Lighten Up and Breathe” is the title of the second presentation by Rachel Schraufnagel, a physical therapist, who specializes in therapeutic exercise to strengthen your posture and combat back pain. Rachel will teach simple and effective ways to strengthen your body in your home with provided resistance bands.
The final keynote of the event, titled “Lighten Up and Laugh – From Hollywood to the Cornfields” features Leslie Norris Townsend, a high-energy Comedienne providing clean stand up comedy, music, and audience participation described as being as much a show as it is a party. Teaching lessons learned by laughing through adversities, she offers audiences an intriguing look at marriage, motherhood, and trying to balance it all while maintaining your sanity.
In addition to the keynote presentations, attendees can visit exhibits for women with information on health education, services provided by area agencies, as well as products and therapies to pamper women.
