An awareness that there are many people in the surrounding community who have been ill and are battling many diseases and illnesses was the impetus for St. Anthony of Padua Parish, Hightstown, to offer a “Let There Be Health Conference” planned for Nov. 3 from 1 to 5 p.m.
“We need to get the word out that there are options and alternatives” for people with illnesses, said Sheila Conway, parish development coordinator.
The four-hour event will feature the following six keynote speakers: Dr. Mark James Bartiss, physician, founder and president of the Institute for Complementary andAlternative Medicine;
Riley Cote, former Philadelphia Flyer and founder and president of Hemp Heals Foundation; Dr. Eric Jaszewski, chiropractic physician at Lawrence Family Chiropractic; Denita Stevens, mental health advocate, speaker and writer; Natasha Pennant, heart disease survivor, health advocate and author, and Bill Sheehan, a helicopter pilot for law enforcement .
The conference is sponsored by numerous community partners.
