It's Time for an UPGRADE! KEYS To Greater Health & Happiness
Patricia J. Sulak, M.D.
We are constantly upgrading our phones, computers and tablets for greater efficiency and productivity. It's time to UPGRADE the most important operating system: Our BRAIN and its trillions of units controlling every aspect of our lives! The GREAT NEWS: We all have the power to change the circuitry and dramatically improve our well-being, altering how we think, feel and act. It's the critical first step to making lasting changes. Dr. Sulak will share her personal journey, delineating why our best intentions often fail and the keys to making doable, lasting life changes. DON'T MISS this mind-blowing presentation!

Putting YourSELF in the Schedule: Strategies to Make it Happen
Ariane Secrest, Ph.D., OTR, CHES®
Women today have been told we can have it all, but with family, work and community activities, we often leave ourselves out of the schedule. Dr. Secrest will focus on practical strategies to make yourself a priority and emphasize ways to include 'me' time in your schedule. When we make our personal health a priority, everyone wins.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

There is NO CHARGE to anyone who wants to attend. This event is brought to you Baylor Scott & White Health Plan and our sponsors.

Do I need to register in advance / have a ticket?

Registration is encouraged but not required. We would appreciate you letting us know if you're coming and how many kids/adults are in your group, so we can plan how many snacks/giveaways to have on hand.

Do I have to have insurance through Baylor Scott & White Health Plan, RightCare or FirstCare?

No, this is a community-wide event open to any and every woman in Central Texas.

Can I bring my kids?

Yes, but please be advised that childcare will not be available.

Why should I come?

Women tend to put themselves last on their list of priorities — and that includes taking charge of their own health and wellbeing. But what happens if you get sidelined by a medical issue? Who will take care of everyone and everything then?

At this event, you will learn ways to Show Yourself Some Love so you can live a healthier, happier life. It's all part of our commitment to empower you to live well.

Do I need to stay the whole time?

If at all possible, yes. However, we understand that you have other commitments and may need to arrive late/leave early. Just know that you'll get the most out of the event if you're able to attend all the presentations.
