Golf legend Nancy Lopez kicks off tournament with local women

Nearly 475 women from across the Southern Tier turned out Aug. 13 for UHS’ second “Pearls of Wisdom with Nancy Lopez.” The women’s health event, held at the En-Joie Golf Course, was a kickoff to the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open golf tournament of the PGA Champions Tour.

The highlight of the event was a golf clinic conducted by LPGA star Ms. Lopez. With 48 LPGA Tour victories and three major championships to her credit, Ms. Lopez is a World Golf Hall of Fame member and one of the most celebrated women in the sport of professional golf today.

“This event was enormously popular,” says Christina Boyd, vice president for Community Relations at UHS. “It was a wonderful opportunity for women in our area to learn about good health — as well as good golf — from one of the true legends of the game.”

With good health on the agenda, providers from sports medicine, orthopedics, podiatry and women’s health at UHS Medical Group, along with Ms. Lopez, presented information about sports medicine, joint replacement and related services available in the Southern Tier.
