Naomi Judd

Keynote Speaker


Country music superstar Naomi Judd will provide the breakfast keynote address during the 2005 Palomar Pomerado Health Women's Conference to be held Saturday, April 9, 2005, at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido. The popular entertainer will join physician experts and other wellness professionals to address the most significant health issues facing women today.


Judd, a survivor of domestic violence and Hepatitis C, as well as a former nurse, secretary, waitress, clerk and divorced, working mother, has essentially come to represent "every woman." Overcoming some of life's most challenging tests in an elegant yet down-to-earth way has made Judd one of the entertainment world's most admired women. She will share her incredible life journey, along with tips for "Transforming Your Life," to more than 500 conference attendees.


In addition to Judd's inspiring message, participants in the 2005 Palomar Pomerado Health Women's Conference will enjoy free health screenings, a wide variety of exhibits, gourmet lunch and the opportunity to attend three of 15 educational sessions on topics ranging from heart disease and menopause to fitness and cosmetic surgery. Plus, motivational speaker

Kelly Ferrin will provide the luncheon keynote address called "What's Age Got To Do With It?" - an insightful and humorous look at the good news about aging.


"Women are the primary decision-makers regarding health care for themselves and their family," says Lorie Shoemaker, chief nurse executive for Palomar Pomerado Health. "Our role is to help empower them by providing the most up-to-date information about the health risks that affect them and those they care about. This conference is a day for women to learn to take care of themselves and have some fun too."




Early registration is $50 per person through January 31, 2005, or $55 per person thereafter, and includes continental breakfast, luncheon, health screenings, free gift bag and more. Space is limited. To register, call 800.628.2880 or visit and click on Calendar of Events.
