Nearly 475 women from across the Southern Tier turned out Aug. 13 for UHS' second "Pearls of Wisdom with Nancy Lopez."
The women's health event, held at the En-Joie Golf Course, was a kickoff to the Dick's Sporting Goods Open golf tournament of the PGA Champions' Tour.
The highlight of the event was a golf clinic conducted by LPGA star Ms. Lopez.
UHS' tent featured health and fitness exhibits of special interest to women, along with free refreshments, giveaways, prize drawings and an enormously popular putting contest.
Orthopedic surgeons from the UHS Medical Group held a news conference with Ms. Lopez and presented information about the sports medicine, joint replacement and related services available in the Southern Tier.
