Ladies, where can you go with your friends, family, or coworkers for a fun day out that is designed for women of all ages and who have varied interests? The Women’s Expo! And there’s one near you this fall.

WellSpan Health has again partnered with us to present the Lebanon County Women’s Expo at the Lebanon Expo Center. Women always welcome health information, and WellSpan will be presenting two health-related seminars on stage:

Total Breast Care: Cancer Treatment, Reconstruction, and Plastic Surgery at 10:15 a.m.Since 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, hear from Heather Portaro, M.D., WellSpan, and learn about the latest advancements in breast surgery, including early-stage breast cancer surgery, post-mastectomy reconstruction, and elective breast augmentation and reduction.

Pelvic Floor Rehab to Improve Bladder Control at 11:45 a.m. Incontinence affects women of all ages. Maureen Halat, a WellSpan physical therapist, will speak about causes of pelvic floor disorders and treatment options available.

And because WellSpan has your health interests at heart, make sure to take advantage of the various free health screenings they are offering in the East Hall, including cholesterol, diabetes, sleep apnea, blood glucose, and more.

On stage at 12:30 p.m. will be Mark Layton, Wildlife Center director at Refreshing Mountain, with his presentation of Reptiles and Amphibians of the World. See some exciting creatures from not only around the world, but also several that are Pennsylvania-native species.

While you’re at the Lebanon County Women’s Expo, relax, and have a chair massage at Homeland at Home’s booth and sample a wine slushie at Bouchette Vineyards’ booth.

If you’re closer to the Lancaster County Women’s Expo at Spooky Nook Sports, please stop in check out that one!

Are you looking for the fountain of youth? Sally Winchell, fitness director with Sally’s Iron Mustangs, believes strengthening and conditioning exercises will help you find it. Winchell will be teaming up with Sensational SilverSneakers members from Bright Side Opportunities Center to demonstrate a typical workout. Perhaps after seeing it, you’ll want to become a member too!

Did you ever think you were psychic? At 10:15 a.m., you will have the chance to hear from Jan McGee, a real psychic who has actually worked with police departments and starred in an episode of Psychic Witness.

At 11 a.m. the Health & Wellness sponsor will discuss a topic they say can be a laughing matter because it often happens when women laugh, cough, or pick up something heavy: leakage. Lauren Westermann, D.O., division chief, female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health, will inform the audience about this very treatable condition. She says it’s time to start talking about incontinence and getting back to doing the things you enjoy.

Tanger Outlets® – Lancaster’s retailers will be strutting fall/winter fashions on stage on 11:45 a.m. You’ll see brand names like Talbots, Ann Taylor, Kate Spade, Brooks Brothers, and Michael Kors. Of course, you’ll want to stop at the Tanger Outlets to check out these and other styles.

Indoor plants brighten up the room during the colder months when we can’t enjoy outdoor blooms.Jodie Morris with Stauffers of Kissel Hill will present a “growing” trend—succulents. Learn the ins and outs of how to be successful with them. 

Because women are the medical decision makers for themselves and their families, Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health is offering some free health screenings. Asses your family history of cancer and learn what it means for you. Or, have your purse weighed and see why you may need to lighten up to avoid back, neck, and shoulder pain. Do you know if you’re at risk for osteoporosis? They’ll be giving Sahara heel scans, so get yours checked while you’re at the expo.

Stop by the Immerse LLC booth and have a chair massage or Zyto scan. I’m not sure what a Zyto scan is, so I’ll have to stop by and learn more about it! And if your fingernails need some attention, take a break at the “Pamper U” Zone for a free manicure, compliments of Lancaster School of Cosmetology.

We are happy to have furry friends at each of the Women’s Expos, so please hug a puppy; proceeds benefit local animal programs.

And take your “selfie” to the Selfie Station. Snap a picture and post it on Facebook, and you could win $100!

Don’t forget—go online now at and register for FREE tickets ($5 at the door).
