Mercy Sets Next Spirit of Women Event

October 29, 2013

Mercy Hospital’s Spirit of Women team has planned its next women’s health event,“LBD: Good Health Looks Good On Everyone” for Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the Independence Civic Center.

 Featuring a “little black dress” theme, the evening will begin at 6 p.m. A healthy dinner will be offered, as well as entertainment and a special keynote presentation, “Keeping Us In Our Little Black Dresses,” by Dr. Anne Hogsett, Mercy Clinic internal medicine physician. The evening also will include a special introduction of Dr. Mekki Saba, orthopedic surgeon.

 “Guests are encouraged to wear their favorite black attire, bring a friend and learn how good health is always in style,” said Joanne Smith, Mercy’s Spirit of Women program coordinator.

 Mercy’s Catherine’s Classic Catering will provide the meal and corresponding recipe cards. Special giveaways will be offered by Spirit of Women partner organizations, and a drawing for a $50 Visa gift card will be conducted.

The event is free of charge, but reservations are required by Nov. 13 to ensure adequate seating and food. Reservations may be made by calling the Mercy Marketing & Communications office at 620-332-3248 or by email at
