ST. CLOUD - Area women can take advantage of free health screenings and information tomorrow (Saturday), during the 11th Annual Women's Health 101.

The free event runs from 8:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. at the CentraCare Health Plaza.

From 8 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., attendants can participate in more than 15 free screenings, visit nearly 40 educational booths and select from 15 presentations by area health care providers covering a variety of women’s health topics, including exercise, stress, nutrition, arthritis and Alzheimer’s. Free glucose and cholesterol screenings are available until 10:30 a.m. or to the first 225 people.

From 1:15-2:30 p.m., local humorist and chronic pain sufferer Judy Wolters will present “De-stress where you are.” During this fun, interactive presentation, participants will laugh and learn techniques to provide stress relief when and where they need it. Judy’s stress-reducing techniques can offer positive healthy rewards for very little effort.

New this year, participants can get behind the controls of the da Vinci surgical robot and meet some of our doctors who perform this minimally invasive surgery. Da Vinci surgery offers smaller incisions, less pain and faster recovery for surgeries related to the bladder, kidneys, female reproductive organs, pelvic floor and prostate.

Pre-registration is encouraged, but not required, at

A $10 donation is suggested to support women's health education.
