One of the Baxter Regional Hospital Foundation’s four community houses is on a mission to help women through all stages of life find a pathway for complete wellness and balance in everyday life. The Schliemann Center for Women’s Health Education has support groups and classes designed to inspire and motivate women to make positive changes and support women in all aspects of life and health.
The classes and support groups offered at the Schliemann Center focus on such topics as babysitting, breastfeeding, childbirth, menopause, nutrition, wellness and heart health. Programs offered throughout the year include Girls’ Night Out, Teen Girls Go To College, Tell Your Mom, Working Women in the Know and Schliemann Learning Sessions.
Some groups at the center offer both a bit of entertainment to go along with an educational value. One such group is the Novel Women’s Book Club. Schliemann Center Coordinator Stefany Isham was a recent guest of the Talk of the Town on KTLO-FM, and she says the club offers two books to read each month.
Isham says one of the Schliemann Center’s goals is to make women in the Twin Lakes Area aware of all of the programs it offers.
Through fundraising events and with assistance from the Baxter Regional Hospital Foundation, most of the services offered at the Schliemann Center are free of charge. The annual Love Life fundraiser is coming up at the end of the month, and this year’s theme is “Boos and Brews Monster Gala.” The event is scheduled for Saturday at the Wellness Education Center Building (formerly Simple Man’s) on Arkansas Highway 5 North. Isham says it’s a costume party for adults.
To learn more about the fundraiser, various programs and other learning sessions, contact the Schliemann Center at (870) 508-2345, or send an email to Isham at email@example.com.
