If you are a woman, you may be feeling overwhelmed by the numerous responsibilities you bear. In today’s world, women must often juggle working, maintaining a home, and being accountable for the health and well-being of their family, including their spouse, children and aging parents. Because women are so busy taking care of others, they have a tendency to put their own health and well-being on the back burner. According to Cheryl West, marketing coordinator of Claremore Regional Hospital, it is vital that women remember to focus on themselves as well. “To properly care for your family, you have to take care of yourself first,” she says. “Maintaining good health will help increase your energy level, prevent disease, and improve your self-esteem, which in turn allows you to better care for others.”

The new Healthy Woman program at Claremore Regional Hospital is designed to empower women with the knowledge and confidence to make informed healthcare and well-being decisions for themselves and their loved ones. Participants will be invited to monthly health seminars and events, and they will receive regular email communication. “This is a free community resource that is geared toward women of all ages and the variety of issues they face,” says West.

Those who sign up for the program will be able to attend education seminars addressing a number of health and lifestyle concerns: skin care, cosmetic and laser surgery, breast care, heart health, hormone replacement therapy, menopause, osteoporosis, weight management, stress management, financial well-being, communicating with your children, caring for your parents, life balance issues and more. These monthly education programs will take place at flexible times – some during the lunchtime hour and some during the evening. Members will also receive health reminders and newsletters via email or postal mail.

The Healthy Woman program will kick off Thursday, September 25 at the Claremore Community Center with a free health fair and women’s expo from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., followed by a catered dinner and guest speaker. Tickets for the dinner are $10, and each person attending will receive a gift and the exciting opportunity to hear renowned author and motivational speaker Dr. Suzanne Metzger, who will be addressing the topic “Gaining Self-Acceptance, Liking Who We Are.”

The program has an advisory council consisting of representation from communities across Rogers County. “This is a support group for women, by women,” says West. “Its goal is to help women educate themselves. When it comes to health, women are the decision-makers in the family, and the Healthy Woman program will encourage them to exert their power and influence.”

The new Healthy Woman program at Claremore Regional Hospital is free to join. You can become a member simply by going online to and clicking on the “Join Healthy Woman” icon. “This is a wonderful opportunity to access information, support and companionship so that you can make the best health and well-being decisions for you and your family,” says West.
