I am proud to be a board member of All About Women, an organization that has helped thousands of women through innovative one day events. Now, the organization is offering the same programming online and becoming even more accessible for women everywhere at any time.
In joining the All About Women Family, The Home Depot has found an incredible opportunity to give back to our community. As a Touring Sponsor with AAW,The Home Depot has found a path to reach thousands of women statewide,enabling them to do it themselves! The event was so successful the originating Home Depot Store in Antioch,TN was awarded the company's Prestigious Annual Orange Embrace Award. Melinda Allen SM THE HOME DEPOT ANTIOCH, TN.
I waited in line with a 60 year old woman that had never had a vision test before, and couldn't even see the top letter of the board because her vision was so impaired and had never been tested.â€¨ â€¨What a great blessing AAW is to this area! I wish all communities could experience what East Tennessee did.
I went to the All About Women event last year, thinking that I was a very healthy 54-year-old woman. I decided to take advantage of all the free tests that Vanderbilt Medical Center was offering since my cousin had been diagnosed with osteoporosis. The good news was that all of the tests were good, except that my blood sugar was through the roof at 490! I couldn't believe it - and neither could they since I felt fine. They said I could have easily gone into a diabetic coma and immediately got me signed up at the Vanderbilt Eskind Diabetes Center where I was officially diagnosed with type 1 diabetes! I don't think I would have gone in for blood sugar testing, as I felt good and no one in my family has had diabetes. So the All About Women event saved my life! It's a wonderful event that I will forever be grateful of!
This is a great organization designed to improve the health and well being of all women in Tennessee. Creating awareness of the resources available to women is an important goal. Women need to take care of themselves, as to health, finances, emotional support, etc. This group does an excellent job in helping all economic levels of women in the community.
