The Prince George's Hospital Center hosts a Women's Health Symposium on Saturday, April 28 at Florian Hall (13701 Old Jericho Park Road, Bowie , MD) from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. The day-long shedule of events includes speakers, discussions and exhibits on a variety of topics. They include stress management, balancing family and career, treatments for Pre-menopausal, Menopausal and Post-Menopausal Women, Women and Heart Disease, Hypertension, Diabetes and arthritis. Organizers say the goal of the event is to provide the women of Prince George's County and the Washington metropolitan are, with a venue to discuss trends in women's health care.

The scheduled keynote speaker is Marsha Warfield. Marsha who? you may ask now, but back in the 80s Warfield was a television staple on a variety of shows. The comedienne is best remembered for playing the caustic bailiff Roz on the popular sitcom "Night Court" and Maxine on "Empty Nest." She also had a brief talk show in 1990. But Warfield's television debut came in 1981 as a star in the movie, "The Marva Collins Story," however she launched her comedy pedigree as a member of the cast on the short-lived, though controversial "Richard Pryor Show" in 1977. While she has made recent guest appearances on shows like "Touched by An Angel" and "Moesha," Warfield is often now found keynoting at a variety of events where she mixes her speeches with her cutting comedic flare.

Registration for the Women's Health Symposium is $20. For more information please call 301-618-2636.
