(TOMBALL, TX) May 8, 2013— TRMC’s Healthy Woman program will celebrate the first anniversary on May 9, 2013, where guests will hear the inspirational story of kidnapping survivor Elizabeth Smart.

Healthy Woman is designed to support a healthy mind, body and spirit for women – and the families they care for.

“Women, who make between 80 and 90 percent of all health care decisions, often balance careers, primary and secondary families, issues with parents, and civic work,” said Bud Wethington “We want to help them with information to make those decisions.”
Smart’s abduction and recovery has motivated and continues to motivate parents, law enforcement and leaders worldwide to focus on children’s safety. She is an advocate for a child empowerment program called, radKIDS® which Tomball Regional Medical Center will offer classes for children aged 5-12 in the summer of 2013. RadKIDS®, Inc. has been committed to providing education that enhances the ability of children and parents to utilize knowledge, skills, and power to protect themselves from violence and harm.
Healthy Woman was created by women for women to provide up-to-date health care information for the entire family. The program’s mission is to empower women of Northwest Houston with the knowledge and confidence to make informed health care and well-being decisions for themselves and their loved ones.
