SHE Women's Expo returns Saturday
Event begins at 8 a.m. at The Venues at OTC

An educational and exciting event for ladies promises prizes, fun and health information during the SHE Women's Expo this Saturday.

Held from 8 a.m. through 1 p.m. at The Venues at Ogeechee Technical College, the SHE Women's Expo brings together area health, fitness and beauty professionals and community women to offer free samples, demonstrations, health information and more, said Ashlee Corbin, Statesboro Herald account executive who helped organize the event. The SHE Women's Expo is presented by the Statesboro Herald, with title sponsor East Georgia Regional Medical Center and other area sponsors.

The event is free and open to the public, she said.

Over 45 exhibitors, including local medical professionals, health care companies, beauty specialists, businesses and civic clubs, are scheduled to offer informational sessions, contests and links to other resources, she said.

There will be giveaways, door prizes and a chance for each attendee to win a grand prize.

"We are excited about our second SHE Expo," said Jim Healy, operations manager and editor for the Statesboro Herald. "There will be a lot of local experts on hand to answer questions and offer ways to live a healthier lifestyle. We appreciate the support of all our sponsors in presenting this important health education event in our community. Please come out and take advantage of a wealth of healthy living information."

The expo theme, "Health | Wellness | Connections," is designed to "empower women to make better decisions about wellness, lifestyle and beauty" and to inspire women of the community to "keep health a priority," Corbin said.

The event is a collaboration of effort from several individuals, agencies and businesses. In addition to the local hospital, other sponsors include Seasons of Japan, Loc's Chicken and Waffles, Southern OB/GYN and McCook's Pharmacy.

"The Herald is excited to work with East Georgia Regional Medical Center," Corbin said. "As the title sponsor, they will provide information on health, comprehensive wellness, and assessments — all accessible to women under one roof."

The partnership to host the Expo is in its second year.

"We are very excited to return as the title sponsor again at this year's second SHE Expo, right here in Statesboro," said Erin Spillman, director of marketing for EGRMC.

"Partnering with the Statesboro Herald to plan something fun and engaging for women of all ages in Bulloch County and the surrounding areas has truly been fulfilling for us. We had such a wonderful time last year, and are looking forward to another successful event this year."

The Statesboro Herald, along with Discovering Bulloch Magazine and Statesboro Moments Magazine, are media sponsors, providing coverage of the expo throughout the day. Those attending will be able to take advantage of hands-only CPR training courtesy of East Georgia Regional Medical Center during a breakout session scheduled at noon. Other informational sessions are scheduled at 9 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.

"We look forward to everyone coming out to experience all that it will have to offer," Spillman said. "The health and wellness of our community is a priority for us at East Georgia Regional Medical Center, and we hope that this free event will bring fresh, new ideas and empowerment to Statesboro for many years to come."
