More than 400 women turned out at The Links at Hiawatha Landing Aug. 12, 2013, to meet LPGA legend Nancy Lopez. “Pearls of Wisdom with Nancy Lopez” was co-sponsored by UHS and Dick’s Sporting Goods. Attendees at the outing learned about good health from a number of UHS healthcare professionals, then got some valuable tips on improving their golf game at a free clinic conducted by Ms. Lopez.
“We can always count on UHS and the many participating departments and providers to offer the latest in resources, including expert information on diet, exercise, physical therapy and preventive medicine for every stage of life,” UHS gynecologist Nancy Shumeyko, MD, said at the event. “And when it comes to improving our golf swings, we can count on this evening’s guest of honor, who has combined a remarkable career on the Tour with a devotion to the cause of fitness, well-being and lifelong health.”
With 48 LPGA Tour victories and three Major Championships, Ms. Lopez is a World Golf Hall of Fame member and one of the most celebrated women in the sport. Today she is on the LPGA Legends Tour and also works to promote public awareness of a number of health issues, including arthritis and cardiovascular disease. She is an active contributor in the areas of heart and cancer research.
