Fun, Fit & Fabulous Women’s Health Conference

I attended the Fun, Fit & Fabulous Women’s Health Conference that was held August 17, 2013 at the Wyndham Grand Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA. This conference was sponsored by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield. The conference started off with a fitness warm-up to get the ladies moving in the morning. The women could take advantage of the health screenings that were being offered or attend the seminars.

After did my health screenings, I attended a cooking demonstration being conducted by Elise Wims. Elise, a Pittsburgh native participated on Season 9 of Hell’s Kitchen where she placed third overall. She made a delicious watermelon salad.  I also attended another cooking demonstration Elise held in the afternoon where she made her goddess smoothie. Her website also has recipes.

Jeannette Jenkins was also the keynote speaker for the women’s health conference. She shared her knowledge of fitness and nutrition. By the way, Jeannette is a very sweet person and comical. You can tell she truly loves and is passionate about what she does. I already follow her on Twitter and Instagram.
