Cheers Foundation hosts Life-Links health lecture at La Jolla High

The National Cheers Foundation, a non-profit women’s health organization based in La Jolla, announced the first of its series of educational Life-Links forums. It is the goal of the group to help bring health education awareness back into the public schools with talks designed to inform and empower women of all ages with a contemporary look at health and body image.

The inaugural presentation will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 15, in Parker Auditorium at La Jolla High School, 750 Nautilus St. Carol LeBeau, a health and fitness reporter for nearly three decades, as well as a cancer survivor, will discuss the importance of making health priority one. LeBeau is a spokesperson for Palomar Pomerado Health and this year has been named San Diego Chair and Promise Leader of the Girl Scouts of the USA’s 100th Anniversary celebration.

Karin Devine, founder and director of the ThinkLink/ Network and Jackie Helm, a Realtor at Gallery Properties, are leading the Life-Links series.

“We have selected the high school format to capture a young audience, and with the support of La Jolla High School, the district, and the PTA, we expect to reach a large audience through e-blast announcements directed weekly to families and the student body,” Devine said. “Our intent is to offer a comprehensive health awareness program with top speakers to help launch this project throughout the San Diego School District, and we reach out now to the San Diego community to help make this a success with your support and attendance.”
