"Many thanks to the Friend's Health Connection for partnering with St. Francis Medical Center to provide quality speakers for the members of our community. The evening lectures of two nationally known authors, Taressa Stoval and Lori Tharps, at our facility were both informative and thought provoking. In the post program evaluations our audience recognized "their enthusiasm and their desire to educate and communicate with others. As the program director, I was equally impressed with the strong organizational skills exhibited by the staff of FHC. They were all outstanding to work with and well versed in program development. We look forward to the strengthening of this partnership in the future."
