The anticipated Mescalero Women’s Wellness Conference is a unique opportunity for women of the Mescalero community to get together and talk, as well as learn, about health. Not only were the 200 participants engaged in learning about health and wellness, they were also empowered through spiritual motivation by hearing powerful testimonies of other brave women and men within the Mescalero community. Topics discussed were Human Trafficking, Diabetes and Depression, Commercial Tobacco Control and Prevention, Social Security Admin., Cancer Awareness, and much more important topics. The committee is hard at work for next year’s conference breaking the nearly 5 year absence of the Women’s Wellness Conference. Next year’s early predictions are to include different tribes from the surrounding areas and invite comedy performances by well-known Native performers.
