“In Her Shoes” LiveWell Workshop Connects Mothers and Daughters in Southwest Louisiana March 6, 2020

Lake Charles, Louisiana – CHRISTUS Ochsner Health Southwestern Louisiana is excited to host the unique “In Her Shoes” LiveWell Workshop to facilitate communication between mothers and daughters on Saturday March 28, at the Sycamore Room of the L’Auberge Casino Resort in Lake Charles.

The singular event is a chance for mothers and daughters to join guest speakers and health experts to talk about issues like anxiety and depression, self-confidence, communication and participate in a medical Q&A session geared toward a girls' maturing body.

“While mothers and daughters often have a beautiful relationship, in the preteen and teen years girls can deal with many issues that can put a strain on that relationship,” said Heather Hidalgo, CHRISTUS Ochsner Health Southwestern Louisiana Director of Marketing. “Though mothers have faced some of the same struggles as girls, the added pressures of social media and a world that strives for perfection has young girls facing things that mothers and caregivers might not understand.”

Guest speakers Bethany Trahan, 2017 Miss Louisiana USA; Kristal Johnson Brown, Human Resources Specialist at Lotte Chemical USA; Scott Rivuere, MS, LPC, RPT-S, Licensed Professional Counselor; and Keidra Clark, MSN, RN, CHRISTUS Ochsner Community Health Education, will address throughout the seminar from 10:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Mothers and daughters will be in separate rooms for part of the seminar but will hear the same message.

“If you are looking for a way to support your daughter through this time in her life, this seminar will provide an encouraging and fun time for you both,” said Hidalgo. “We invite women of Southwest Louisiana to join us for a day of mother-daughter bonding!”

The cost of the seminar is $10 per person and includes a goody bag, lunch and great information. Registration is required – please call 866.200.3627 to register by March 20.
