SEOUL — A women’s health seminar will be held March 15 at the Dragon Hill Lodge’s Naija Ballroom.

The purpose of the seminar, said event spokesman Sgt. 1st Class Dexter Gray, 18th Medical Command, is to tell women how to increase the length and quality of their lives.

Planned for both Women’s History Month and National Nutrition Month, the seminar’s theme is “Moving History Forward Through Health — Fad Free.”

Gray said a lot of thought was put into the theme.

“Every day you see these women on TV, and they’re skinny. But that’s not what society shows,” he said.

“There’s a medium weight, especially for females and that’s why we focused on that theme.”

The seminar will include presentations on diabetes, hormone replacement therapy, spiritual fitness and nutrition.

Free food samples will be offered at lunch, along with a number of free pampering services including massages and nail art. Other entertainment also is planned.

Personnel from the 18th Medical Command also will provide free health screenings.

Gray said the entire U.S. Forces Korea community — men included — is welcome to attend.

“A male can take this information and pass it along to his wife or his daughter,” he said.
