"The Heart of the Home" Program Features Keynote Speaker Stacey Speller

With so many of today's women performing a balancing act while trying to have it all, they still remain the heart of the home.

Join Piedmont Mountainside Hospital and renowned international speaker Stacey Speller for the 5th Annual Celebrate Women Forum entitled “The Heart of the Home” on Saturday, Feb. 16, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Education Center at Appalachian Technical College. The morning seminar will include lectures on a variety of heart-healthy topics including women's physical health, mental health, and healthy eating habits.

The keynote speaker, Stacey Speller is a highly sought-after author, life coach, and columnist. Her speech entitled "Overcoming Stress and Finding Balance in One's Life," will address her passionate belief that everyone should discover their own unique gifts, talents and purpose, and that all things are possible. As a busy professional, wife and mother, Speller is well versed in the concept of "having it all" and contends that people "can have it all, just not necessarily all at one time."

"I know the women in our community will enjoy hearing Stacey speak about ways to overcome stress in work and in life,” said Regina Camp, director of community relations for Piedmont Mountainside Hospital. “Her message of balance resonates with women of all ages all over the country, including women here in the north Georgia community.”

In addition to Speller's words of wisdom, local physicians will discuss a range of women’s health topics related to maintaining a healthy heart.

The following individuals will lead discussions:
