About the Event + Ticket Information
The Let’s Talk: Women’s Health + Wellness event started as an idea curated by Founder and former Executive Director of Susan G. Komen North Jersey, Deborah Q. Belfatto. After receiving a second breast cancer diagnosis during the COVID pandemic, she thought to herself, “I have always felt strongly that every woman is deserving, entitled, and worthy of the highest standards of healthcare.” She also added, “But what about self-care? Women so often be the primary caregivers, and we tend to put work, family, children — everyone and everything else — before our needs,” per a press release.
With all these thoughts in the back of her mind, Deborah teamed up with her friend and executive producer, Gail P. Stone of Gail P. Stone Events. That’s when the Let’s Talk: Women’s Health + Wellness event came to life. The October 21st event will be co-hosted by Dr. Chris Pernell and Dr. Anita Sands. Each of these hosts will be presenting their own sessions packed with health information.
Apart from these two host-led sessions, there will be other sessions featuring other experts. Doctors, authors, health, nutrition, and wellness coaches, fitness professionals, and financial advisors will come together to give insight on health-related topics. Every participant will be guided by these experts through the eight attributes of wellness. The Let’s Talk’s “Eight Pillars” of wellness are: social, emotional, intellectual, physical, nutritional, emotional, financial, and spiritual well-being.
After hearing from experts, guests can also join in on the fun planned for the day. There will be various wellness brands providing handmade crafts, jewelry, healthy baked goods, plants, and other items that will be sampled or on sale to purchase. The day will end with a dance party for attendees to let loose and mingle with others. Let’s Talk swag bags made up of healthy goodies for on-the-go will be distributed to participants.
