Centegra's Health Strong Woman set for Feb. 21

CRYSTAL LAKE – Centegra Health System will host its seventh annual Health Strong Woman event Feb. 21 as a reminder to women of McHenry County to take care of their health and wellness.

The event runs from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Holiday Inn in Crystal Lake. Admission is $10.

There will be a healthy lunch and free screenings: blood pressure, bone density, carpal tunnel, diabetes and foot screenings. A risk assessment tool will estimate a heart’s age.

Attendees will receive a $10 gift card to Algonquin Commons and have the opportunity to win raffle prizes, many donated by Algonquin Commons. Every woman also will receive a free freshwater pearl.

Attendees will meet two of Centegra’s specialty physicians who will discuss heart health and arthritis concerns.

During a lunch-and-learn program, women will dine with one of many Centegra professionals.

Each year, Centegra hosts a special guest speaker. This year, it’s author, humorist and cancer survivor Mimi Donaldson. In her book, “Bless Your Stress – It Means You’re Alive,” Donaldson shares simple strategies on how to laugh at all that life throws.

Seating is limited and tickets sell quickly. The first 300 to register and attend will receive a free salad shaker.

To register, visit or call 877-236-8347.
