Little Co. plans Girls Night Out

Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park will hold its annual 5th annual Girls’ Night Out on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at the Hilton Oak Lawn Hilton.

Wine and appetizers will be offered followed by a keynote presentation by Nancy Taft, a fellowship trained breast surgeon and medical director of the Comprehensive Breast Center at Little Company. Taft understands that women have unique and variable health needs throughout the different stages of life. In her presentation, “Stay Abreast of the Best,” she will provide the most up-to-date information about breast health screening, prevention and treatment.

After dessert and coffee, participants will discover how to become “The Resilient Woman” as Joan Murphy, director of Women’s Wellness Consultants at Little Company, will bring her wisdom and humor to share her secrets of resiliency, which include her five beatitudes.

The Women’s Wellness Consultants at LCM were the recent recipients of the Sister Nancy Boyle Award for Excellence at Crystal Heart Ball this year. Since their formation, Women’s Wellness Consultants have provided innovative wellness programs conducted by registered nurses. Their focus includes the holistic approach of body, mind and spirit. Murphy has developed more than 40 workshops and presented these to the community and nationwide over the years.
