Break Out Sessions
Home Safety for You & Your Family Kathy Krause, RN Clinic Coordinator, Samaritan Home Care Jane Matz, Physical Therapist, Samaritan Home Care
Home safety is an important issue for all generations. Did you know that home related injuries result in nearly 20,000 deaths and 21 million medical visits on average each year? An accident or injury can occur in any part of your home. Some safety hazards are obvious but many are not so easily identified. In this session, we will discuss environmental safety, fire safety, medications and how to make your home safe.
Best Practices for Healthy Computing Steve Kaufman, Associate Director of Learning Management
Technology… we use it to manage our time, contacts and social lives, plus pay bills and book airfare. We rely on it heavily and forget the basics of how to use computers, the internet, and cell phones safely. What if you lost all of the photos on your computer? What would you do if random credit card charges appeared on your statement? In this session, you will learn some basic things you can do to backup your files, protect yourself from phishing emails, and surf the internet safely.
Health & Fitness for Women of all Ages Laura B. (Vernon) Kruger ‘04 Professional Instructor of Sports Sciences, Lifetime Wellness
This will be a “how to” workshop to learn the general facts to stay fit and healthy for women of all ages. Exercises tailored to different age groups will be shared. Since women are typically busy juggling responsibilities of family life, career, and personal life, this workshop will showcase how staying fit and healthy can be achieved despite a busy schedule.
NOTE: Exercise demonstrations will be done by the instructor only, not the workshop attendees.
A Taste of HoneyMoney Kris Hovsepian Asst Professor of Marketing, Hospitality Management & Law
Participate in a taste test comparing name brand and generic products, as well as local products compared with national competitors.

Data collected will be compared with Ashland University students’ responses and the results will be presented at the Small Business Institute conference and subsequently published.
Women Creating Change – How Women Make a Difference through Volunteer Service Becky (Myher) Schaaf ’04 Director of Community Service & Leadership Development
“Volunteerism is the glue that will hold us together and it will be the energy that will take us into the 21st century.” Why is volunteerism so important? How does it affect both our local and world economy? This workshop will discuss these topics. Hear stories from several female leaders in the Ashland area who have impacted the lives of others through service. The session will also include a hands-on service component and give practical ideas for ways each of us can serve on a daily basis.
Accessories: The Things that Set Women Apart Geri (Bordner) Knisely ’70, Cookie Lee Jewelry Consultant
