Black Expo Seminars

10:00am – 11:00am:“What Happens in This House: Taking Time For You” – Presented by Roper | Room 3

This interactive seminar is designed for women who do too much for others and not enough for themselves. Women tend to be the major health care providers for their families and friends. However, research shows that caregivers often neglect their own health and suffer greatly due to over extending themselves. During this insightful and stirring session women will be inspired while learning the importance of self-care.

After the seminar, use your complimentary Expo ticket to visit the Roper Women Health Spa! Roper will also be in the Health Village giving free health screenings and do not forget to explore the rest of the Expo.
