[April 05, 2016]  LINCOLN - Women take care of their families oftentimes to the point of ignoring their own physical, spiritual and/or emotional needs. On April 15th, at 5:30 p.m., the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Auxiliary and the Healthy Communities Partnership hopes to remind ladies of Logan County that you can’t take care of others unless you are taking care of yourself. And so, for the third year, ALMH is hosting “Ladies Night Out”.

Ladies Night Out is about celebrating healthy lifestyles for women, embracing the influence women have on their families and providing education.

This year’s event will host keynote speaker, Chef Ken Myska. Myska is the owner/operator/farmer of the farm-to-fork restaurants Epiphany Farms and Anju Above in Bloomington, Illinois. Chef Myska earned his degree in Hospitality Management from the University of Nevada in Las Vegas, worked in elite kitchens of renowned hotels. Chef Myska will discuss food sustainability, our food system, the seasonality of food, and explain why farm-to-table cuisine is fresh, healthy, and delicious.

Between the hors d’oeveres, and desserts the evening will also provide to breakout sessions. Andrea Sheley, a Nurse Practioner with Memorial Physician Services, will discuss which numbers you should know to keep track of your health. Nicole Florence, MD, Medical Director of the Memorial Weight Loss and Wellness Center, will also provide a breakout session focusing on women advocating for their health.

“Women have a tremendous impact on their families but they can’t forget to take care of themselves. Our Ladies Night Out event puts the focus back on them, provides education and inspiration, and the opportunity to enjoy a night out,” said Healthy Communities Partnership manager Angela Stoltzenburg.

Space is very limited and reservations are required. To reserve a spot for the event, call 217-605-5008.
