The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Chattanooga Chapter, Inc. (NCBW) is hosting its annual Make It Matter! Make It Happen! Make It a Healthy Lifestyle! health and financial wellness conference for women and girls. This year’s event will be held at Erlanger Baroness Hospital Medical Mall on Saturday, September 8, 2018 from 7:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Each year roughly 200 women and girls, ranging in age from 12 to 90, attend the conference. The goal is to present information relevant to issues facing women and girls today.
From recognizing and understanding mental health, identifying sexual harassment and domestic violence to bullying, conflict resolution and financial well being, the day will be full of information women and girls in our community will find useful in their daily lives.
In order to create an environment that cultivates and encourages women and girls to speak openly and honestly about their health and financial wellness concerns, we have only invited female presenters, speakers and exhibitors.
The conference is free and limited to 225 participants. Pre-registration is required. Registration is currently open and ends September 1. All interested women and girls may pre-register by calling (423) 778 (LINK) or (423) 778-5465. Walk-ins will be accommodated if space permits. Minors will require written permission from a parent or legal guardian to attend the conference.
Erlanger Health System is serving as this year’s Platinum Sponsor. Both a continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Be sure to stay up-to-date on this event and others via our Facebook page @NCBWChattanooga
