"My butt was so big, I could serve dinner for eight on it." Rim shot. One hundred pounds lighter and with a considerably smaller derriere, keynote speaker author and radio talk show host Mother Love regaled her audience of more than 1,000 women at the 10th annual Women's Health Conference. Presented by Sen. Carol Liu and the Wellness Community Foothills Inc., the conference drew women (and a smattering of men) from all over the Southland on Friday. This year's conference had grown so large, it had to be moved to the Pasadena Convention Center.
A continental breakfast kick-started the day of congeniality, healthy food and health workshops. Wearing a bright pink fright wig in honor of Halloween, Liu offered greetings and introduced emcee KABC7 health specialist Denise Dador.
After Dador's remarks Executive Director of AT&T Anita Gabrielian talked about her own cancer scare. Fortunately, exploratory surgery revealed no malignancy. Gabrielian, who is also a member of Glendale Community College's Board of Trustees, well represented the conference's Premium Sponsor AT&T.
