Wine, Women, Wisdom and Lots of Laughter

Jennifer Hennessy A Scents of Joy

Jennifer Hennessey, RN in Speare’s Birthing Suite, kicked off the speaker portion of the event with “A Scents of Joy” – about aromatherapy and the different scents we use at the hospital – Peppermint, Orange and Lavender – and their effects in improving patient wellness.

The second presentation was, “Eat From the Ground and Lose a Pound” by Speare Memorial Hospital nutritionist, Janette Gaumer, RD/LD who encouraged the audience “Don’t Deny yourself foods, listen to your body and have moderation and portion control.”

Rounding out the first half of our event was “Chair Yoga, No Kidding” with the team from RehabFit.
