January 2013 Newsletter

2013. Another new year to begin, full of opportunity and promise.  The Women in Balance Institute has so much to look forward to in this New Year.  It will be our first full year as an institute within the National College of Naturopathic Medicine. Joining NCNM (now known as NUNM) has brought WIBI the support of naturopathic docs across the nation and has expanded our physician locator tool – NUNM’s Provider Tool – to connect more women with qualified health care providers.

Another first for 2013 will be WIBI’s inaugural Women’s Health Symposium, which will be held March 15-17 in Portland OR.  This conference is unique in that we will have 2 days of continuing education for health care providers AND a half-day conference for the public to learn about hormone balance and healthy aging.  Our vendor hall is going to be packed with companies that support women’s wellness like Vitanica supplements, Key pharmacy, Meridian Valley laboratory and more.   Can’t make it to Portland to attend the conference live? No problem! We will be broadcasting the conference via webinar live and also have it available for future download to watch anytime.

For the public track, registration is $42 and is open now.

This being our “new years newsletter”, includes a great article on resolutions, five tips on keeping them.  Also in honor of thyroid awareness month a great article on thyroid health, My Thyroid Does What?  and finally a summary on why and when to test for Cervical Cancer screening, or a PAP smear.  Please enjoy and pass along to anyone you think might like these articles.  Thank you for your continued support of WIBI and if you have questions or feedback, shoot us an email at info@womeninbalance.org

In health,
