Rogers Foundation to Host 9th Annual Women’s Gathering

Rogers Memorial Hospital Foundation Women's Gathering raises funds to support patient care.

Oconomowoc, WI, May 04, 2013 --( The public is invited to attend the 9th Annual Women’s Gathering hosted by the Rogers Memorial Hospital Foundation. This women’s luncheon and program will be held on May 21, 2013 at The Wisconsin Club, downtown Milwaukee, at 11:30 a.m. It will feature the topic, “Spring Training: Recondition Your Mind and Spirit.”

The theme was chosen based up on the keynote speaker, Trenni Kusnierek. A graduate of Muskego High School and Marquette University, Trenni has since become a nationally known sports anchor, climbing her way to the top with stops at several local and national networks, including WTMJ4 in Milwaukee. Watching her report the latest sporting news, you'd never realize that she suffers from depression.

Trenni uses her national platform to educate the public about depression. By sharing her story, she hopes to break through the stigma of mental illness and help those who suffer understand that they are not alone - that what they are feeling is real and there is help available.

The program will also feature Rachel C. Leonard, PhD, Behavioral Activation Specialist & Clinical Supervisor at Rogers. Dr. Leonard will discuss the differences between “the blues” and depression and offer techniques to decrease depressed mood and live a more fulfilling life.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the Women’s Gathering will contribute to the Spiritual Care program at Rogers. This program is completely funded by generous donors to the Rogers Foundation. Last year, the Spiritual Care program made 5,000 patient contacts through group sessions and one-on-one meetings. This is a free program to patients at Rogers.
