The 21st Annual Women’s Wellness Forum focuses on three keys to happiness and the role it plays in health: harmony, balance, laughter. The theme may bring to mind a popular tune from a few years back — “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.”

The focus on finding harmony, balance and laughter in our lives is designed to help us spend less time worrying and more time being happy, organizers say.

Good health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. So this year, organizers are also addressing mental wellness. The keynote speaker is Karen Mills, whose presentation is “Laughter Lifts You Up.” She will address the forum from 12:35 p.m. to 1:35 p.m

The guest speakers are Patty Wisner, who will discuss Tools to Deal with Stress; Dale Bellisfield, RN, talking about How to Provide Fuel for Wellness; and Dr. Ergi Gumusaneli, MD, who tackles No Wellness Without Mental Wellness.
