That was the message of a keynote address, “Bringing Out the Aphrodite in You,” presented by Delphine Geraci, a bariatric nurse and mother of four, at the 2nd annual Women’s Day of Health.
The Women and Heart Disease Committee sponsored the event Saturday at Griffin Hospital.
“As women, we want to make everybody happy,” Geraci said. She reminded the approximately 105 on hand that they are “powerful people.”
Geraci said bariatric nursing is “a field I’m passionate about, and the one thing I’m most passionate about is how we feel about ourselves and our bodies. “As women, we really do it to ourselves; we’re good at putting ourselves down. We need to appreciate who we are, especially our bodies.”
Geraci advised women to “honor, respect, and fuel” their bodies. She suggested making a list “of all the things your body lets you do. Read it and add to it often.”
