POSTED: 05/9/11 1:46 PM

St. Maarten-  (DCOMM) — Public Health Minister Cornelius de Weever met with Dr. Louis Jeffry, Vice-President of the Collectivité of Saint Martin, to plan a joint Women’s Health Symposium in June. Stakeholders like the Positive Foundation represented by Ms. Shelley Alphonso and Collective Preventive Services, represented by Daphne Illis, also attended the meeting.

“We are making a concentrated effort to ensure that both sides of the island’s medical skills and social partners are in synergy. We need to break through the invisible borders,” Minister De Weever said.

Dr. Jeffry said:” St. Maarten is missing a health event with this ambition, designed to inform and educate the largest number of women. This joint program, Women’s Health Symposium, is now in the process of becoming a reality.”

All women are invited to participate in the conference, to take advantage of personalized consultations with health professionals and participate in the fitness coaching sessions or cooking classes. The committee will hold follow-up meetings and involve more stakeholders.
