Day of Healing for Women
Sunday, April 21st, 2013
For women with any type of chronic condition who wish to enjoy a day of healing and the companionship and support of other women.
Our 501C not-for-profit Foundation provides support for women who want to move forward and make life better for themselves and others. Through workshops, sponsorships, scholarships and both educational and spiritual programs, the Foundation is dedicated to generating positive change.
Our growth relies in part upon the generous contributions and support of others. Find out how you can get involved.
The mission of the Barbara E. Giordano Women's Health and Education Foundation is to support the empowerment of women through programs and events designed to promote personal growth and enhance all aspects of well-being--physical, mental, spiritual and social. The Foundation is committed to educating, informing and supporting all women interested in an integrated holistic approach to life. Through our programs and events the Foundation fosters a sense of community and connection that impacts individual women, their families, communities and the world.
Your donation, no matter how small, will be used to give women opportunities to discover how to create healthy, fulfilling lives.
