Because of his commitment to women’s health issues, Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo will once again sponsor the Women’s Health Forum on Wednesday, Oct. 10, from 6-8 p.m. at Winthrop High School.
“In its 21st year, this forum provides a meeting place for women in our community to get more information about healthy and active living,” said House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo. “We hope people will turn out to meet with medical professions, get a flu shot or bring a friend or family to this annual event.”
Co-sponsored by East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, the forum also gives an opportunity for people to receive a free flu shot and blood pressure test.
This year’s speakers include keynote speaker Emily Riemer, Channel 5 news anchor and medical editor, and Dr. Astrid Weins, of the Winthrop Board of Health. Weins will speak on the role of the Board of Health in town government.
