PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Jupiter Medical Center Foundation proudly hosted its inaugural Women’s
Health & Wellness Conference on Thursday, March 1 at PGA National
Resort and Spa. Wellness expert and life coach Jillian Michaels was the
keynote speaker, engaging with guests during an extensive Q&A session.
Prior to speaking in front of the crowd of more than 150 women, Jillian
spent several hours meeting one-on-one with local cancer patients to encourage
them as they continue on their individual journeys.
The event kicked off on the evening of February 28 with a cocktail reception
at The Spa at PGA National. Guests enjoyed mini spa services, a taste
of exclusive wines produced and provided by the Hill Family Estate, and
received a copy of Jillian’s book,
Unlimited: A Three-Step Plan for Achieving Your Dreams.
The conference focused on women’s health and wellness, including
orthopedics, sleep, stroke risk factors and prevention, heart health,
cosmetic trends and stress management. Guests attended sessions on each
topic, presented by some of the area’s top physicians and specialists.
