Hudson Valley Hospital Center will hold its 12th Annual Women’s Symposium from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. November 3 at the Chalet on the Hudson in Cold Spring, NY. The symposium will feature a full lineup of expert speakers who will offer a fresh perspective on the secrets to good health and leading a fulfilling life.

Themed “It’s a Give and Take World,” this year’s symposium will focus on how to make connections and enrich our lives through the acts of giving and receiving. Speakers will include Nicole Shendlin, executive director of Her Honor Mentoring program, and Lindsay Aarstad, a physician’s assistant who will talk about her recent experience working at a missionary clinic in Africa. As part of a new tradition, the hospital will honor a special woman for her contributions to the community. This year’s honoree is Chereese Jervis-Hill, president of Events to Remember.

WHUD’s Kacey Morabito Grean will host the symposium, which also includes breakfast, lunch, a gift and raffle prizes, yoga, chair massages, and an astrology presentation by Demitra Vassiliadis. Tickets cost $45. To register, call Hudson Valley Hospital Center at 914.734.3794 or register online at
