In recognition of February as Women’s Heart Health Month, the group of professional women donned red and listened to heart healthy tips from guest speaker Lisa Robertson, R.N., B.S.N., a Cardiac Nurse at University Hospital’s Heart & Vascular Institute.
“Ladies in Red is our theme for this networking event at the Innovative Workspace Center, where we can all enjoy being together in our own space and not be interrupted by noise, or any other chatter,” said NAPW Augusta Local Chapter President Sue Pellerin.
The President kicked off the meeting by welcoming everyone to the Augusta Local Chapter meeting.
Members and guests were asked to introduce themselves and tell everyone a little about their businesses and backgrounds during the Chapter’s 5 Minute Meet & Greet.
”The Augusta Chapter’s mission statement and brand promise were read by Sue, who then invited the evening’s guest speaker to take the floor.
“Our February event was in recognition of Women’s Heart Health Month and its purpose was to share helpful and important information on how to have a healthy heart,” said the Chapter President.
“To help us accomplish this, we had a very special guest speaker, Nurse Lisa Robertson, join us. She will teach us about how important it is to keep your heart healthy and how to eat right.”
Lisa Robertson graduated from USC Aiken in 2008 with an Associate degree in Science, a minor in Physicology, and a Bachelor degree in Nursing. She has been a Registered Nurse at University Hospital’s Heart & Vascular Institute for the past five years. Ms. Robertson is devoted to her patients’ care as a heart Nurse and makes an immediate positive impact on their quality of life. Ms. Robertson spoke to the group of professional women about how important it is to stay healthy and she shared with them the basics on how to maintain a healthy heart.
After the presentation from the guest speaker, members and guests had the opportunity to take part in the Augusta Local Chapter’s auction for dollars.
Attendees learned about each other and for everything they guessed right about a person, they received $100 in ‘play money,’ which they were able to use to bid on exciting prizes in an auction at the end of the event.
During the evening, Sue Pellerin shared with guests how to join the NAPW Augusta Local Chapter. She spoke to all about what NAPW has to offer professional women and told attendees about the events coming up in the current weeks.
“I encourage everyone to get out in the community and find out more about what is going on so that the Augusta Local Chapter can be a part of local events and happenings,” said the Chapter President.
Sue closed the meeting by announcing the Chapter’s next event that will be held on March 4th at Bath Fitter, and will be hosted by Michelle Stewart, the Showroom Manager.
This next event will be not only informative and fun, but will also have some of members and guests speaking about their businesses and products. The theme for the event will be “March of Dimes Saving Our Babies Together.”
“Our guest speakers will be Joy Barr, Community Director of Augusta March of Dimes, and Michelle Kaminer. They will speak to us about how to raise money for this organization,” said Sue.
