University of Missouri Extension and the Summersville Community Center are hosting a “Strong Women Healthy Lives Expo” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 20. The goal of the conference is to educate women on the importance of all aspects of their health.

The “Strong Women-Healthy Lives Expo” will include the very best in shopping, beauty, health, nutrition, fitness, financial planning, home décor and children’s products while placing an emphasis on the fact that a woman’s physical, financial, mental and emotional health matters.

The Expo will be held at the Summersville Community Center, 98 Youth Center Avenue in Summersville. The day’s activities will include several physical activity demonstrations, a presentation from Farmers Insurance “Life 101.” The presentation will focus on life insurance and financial options for all women.

“Women should find out their value, what they’re worth to their family and how to provide for their self and their family not only in death but in life,” said Cynthia Jones-Ramsey, a Farmers Insurance agent from Willow Springs.

The “Strong Women-Healthy Lives Expo” will end with a fashion show at 1 p.m. that will focus on fashions that can be purchased locally.

There will be a tea room inspired lunch provided from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a $5 charge. All proceeds will go toward the Community Center in Summersville.

Expo attendees can also register to win a trip for themselves and a girl friend to Las Vegas for the “Ultimate Girls Get Away.”

“You’ve been balancing a busy life and it’s time to grab your girlfriends and enjoy a day that’s all about you,” said Cammie Younger, nutrition and health specialist with University of Missouri Extension.
