The 14th annual Health Empowerment Tour, sponsored by IMARA Woman magazine and presented by Select Health of South Carolina and AmeriHealth Caritas Partnership, is set for Sept. 12.
The event will take place at Morningside Middle School, 1999 Singley Lane, in North Charleston and will run from 8 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. The theme will be “Mind, Body, Spirit: Laughter is Good Medicine.”
Free services offered will include health screenings, educational workshops and activities.
“The Health Empowerment Tour is a day of fun and fellowship that addresses the social determinants of health disparities through entertaining and lively discussion,” Wendy Brawley, founder and publisher of IMARA Woman, said.
Attendees must register in advance for the tour, which will feature a fashion show, cooking demonstrations, door prizes, entertainment and lunch highlighted by comedian Mike Goodwin. Participants may attend two of the 10 workshops offered.
“The Health Empowerment Tour is designed to educate, inspire and serve as a catalyst for healthy living,” Rebecca Engelman, market president at Select Health, said. “The tour aligns perfectly with our mission to help people get care, stay well and build healthy communities."
Space is limited, and early sign up is available at www.imarawoman.com or by calling (803) 252-0647.
“Everyone in a household benefits when a primary caregiver learns how to improve their health, and the Health Empowerment Tour is dedicated to them,” Maria Pajil Battle, president of AmeriHealth Caritas Partnership, said.
The tour will continue on Sept. 26 at the Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College in Orangeburg and Oct. 17 at the St. John Holistic Wellness Center in Hopkins. For more information about the tour, visit www.amerihealthcaritaspartnership.org.
