Edward-Elmhurst Health hosted “Unstoppable You,” a Healthy Driven Wellness Forum, on Saturday, March 16 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Oak Brook.
Samantha Harris, former co-host of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and Entertainment Tonight, was the keynote speaker. Harris was diagnosed in 2014 with stage II invasive breast cancer at age 40. She shared her treatment journey in a video diary that aired on Entertainment Tonight and the E! Network. Along with her husband, Michael, Harris founded the online community "Gotta Make Lemonade" to inspire positivity in the face of adversity. She recently published her first book, “Your Healthiest Healthy: 8 Ways to Take Control, Help Prevent and Fight Cancer, and Live a Longer, Cleaner Happier Life.”
“Unstoppable You,” which was funded by the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Foundation, also featured breakout sessions on healthy eating, how to ease stress and anxiety, tips for better sleep, options for weight loss and how to start an exercise plan.
