Please join us for connection and conversation at our annual Women United Fall Kickoff Event on Thursday, September 24 at 7 p.m. Our event will be held on Zoom. This event is free to current and prospective members of Women United. Click here to register.

After months of supporting our community, our families and one another during the pandemic, we are taking an evening to focus on ourselves and the practice of self-care. AdventHealth Psychologist Cynthia King, PsyD will share the impact of the virus and ways to strengthen your mental wellness through this time. We’ll also get tools for the rest of our bodies to help us build our mental wellness abilities from AdventHealth Wellness Coordinator, LaToya Ellis, MHA.

We are also excited to bring you a Wine & Chocolate Pairing from two local women business owners, Merit Wolff of Wine, Sage & Gourmet and Celeste Ralston from Van's Chocolates. Each attendee will receive curated wine and chocolates designed to be enjoyed together while listening to a live presentation on pairing these decadent items.

Please join us!
