Leah Marinelli, MS, CNM, RN, NP and Yutta Engel, CM, LM, two local midwives, are very excited to be hosting the first Jewish Women’s Health Symposium, to be held on July 8th, 2018 at the Atrium Ballroom in Monsey, New York. The symposium will be a comprehensive, educational day-long affair, encompassing the cycle of a woman’s health from adolescence to menopause and the years beyond. These two experienced midwives, who have practiced midwifery in Rockland County for many years, are expecting a successful event and hope that this will become an annual occurrence.
Yutta and Leah believe: “When a woman is healthy, a family is happy and the community thrives.” This planned event is a culmination of their goal in providing Jewish women with education about their bodies and health. As providers of maternity services, health care, and education, they have recognized the need for a widespread campaign to extend health education to Jewish women, addressing health care needs during the entire female lifespan.
The Symposium will begin at 9:30 am with a sign-in and light breakfast. The entrance fee will include a healthy lunch, an afternoon spread and refreshments throughout the day (and will be strictly kosher). A wide range of vendor booths will provide education, information, and health screenings, along with giveaways. The event will include talks by respected professionals who are experts in the fields of endocrinology, nutrition, emotional health, physical therapy, osteopathy, radiology, health screening and maternity care. Speakers will include local midwives, medical doctors, nutritionists, and licensed therapists who will be available to answer questions.
We welcome women of all ages and all levels of observance to this first Jewish Women’s Health Symposium in the Monsey area, which is sure to benefit body, mind and soul. For more information, please contact:
