hopelogoThe Hispanic Organization for Progress and Education sponsored their second annual Women’s Health Conference at the Riverview Inn on Saturday, to close out the National Women’s Health Week.

The primary goal of the conference is to help minority and low income women with self esteem issues, and to instill in women the knowledge that they are not alone, that other people are out there willing to help them.
