Swedish Medical Center plans a women’s wellness event that features massages, facials and presentations on subjects relating to women’s health.

“Too often women are busy caring for others; this event provides us with an important reminder to take time to focus on ourselves and our health,” Christina Merritt, administrative director of women’s services at Swedish Medical Center, said in a news release. “We want to encourage and inspire women through providing access to critical health conversations and wellness screenings in a fun and engaging way.”

South Metro Denver Chamber, Invision Sally Jobe and the Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute are partnering with Swedish to put on “A Wellness Affair,” which will take place Sept. 7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Centrum Healthcare Center, 8200 E. Belleview Ave. in Greenwood Village.

Featured presentations include stress management and heart health, self-care and screening, sexual wellness and pelvic floor health. Women attending the event can also register for bone density, blood pressure and mammography screenings.

“The SMDC is pleased to be a sponsor for this important women’s health event,” SMDC CEO Bob Golden said in the release. “Swedish Medical Center is an important part of the healthcare services arena here in the South Metro. We’re excited the hospital is able to offer this preventative healthcare event to the women of our area.”
