Join us for “Spring to Health” May 3 at Hickory High School Auditorium

     Former supermodel Kim Alexis will be the featured speaker at “Spring to Health 2003” Saturday, May 3, 6 p.m.-9 p.m. in the Hickory High School auditorium. The evening is sponsored by NuBridge Development, Inc. in association with Sharon Regional. The goal of the event is to help educate the community regarding the benefits of healthy living by providing information on diet, fitness, health screenings, and key health risks.

     “I foresee this being a great event for the community, one that we can do on an annual basis,” says Shane Nugent, vice president of NuBridge. “Our family has enjoyed great success in the Shenango Valley for almost 50 years. This event is just one way for us to contribute something back to our community. We have a wonderful evening planned and hope all can join us to celebrate the benefits of healthy living.”

     Adds Wendy Karlovic, RN, education director/risk manager, “A portion of the proceeds from ‘Spring To Health’ will go to the local chapters of the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross. This will be an exciting community event for Shenango Valley and the surrounding areas.”

     “This promises to be a great program – featuring the best of what’s available locally for women along with an opportunity to hear a national speaker like Kim Alexis,” said Michalene Gula, RN, BSN, director of Sharon Regional’s Women’s Center. “It’s a perfect opportunity for Sharon Regional to feature its Women’s HeartAdvantage Program, Women’s Center, Breast Care Center, and other specialized services we have for women.”

     Maryann Payne, M.D., cardiothoracic surgeon in Sharon Regional’s Heart Institute, will speak on “Heart Health for Women – Taking Charge.” A formal, private VIP reception at Rachelle House, 941 East State St., Sharon, where guests can meet Kim Alexis, follows the forum at the high school.

     “At NuBridge Development, we focus on meeting the communities’ development and educational needs by providing events that promote quality living,” says Diane Pagkalinawan, NuBridge director of public relations says. “What better way to start than bringing ‘Spring To Health’ to our community.”

     NuBridge Development, Inc. is part of the Nugent Group that includes Nugent’s in Hermitage and Clepper Manor and Rachelle House in Sharon.
