The Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce presents this year’s 2017 Celebrating Women: Mind, Body, Spirit conference on April 6, 2017 at the Moody Gardens Convention Center. The conference features keynote speaker actress Marilu Henner, star of two classic sitcoms (Taxi & Shade), more than 30 films, six Broadway shows, been nominated for five Golden Globe awards, and New York Times bestselling author of over ten books on health, parenting, memory and lifestyle improvement.

Married with two sons, she practices a life of health and fitness. Her latest book, Changing Normal: How I Cured my Husband’s Cancer, became the number one book on Amazon the first day on the market. She will share her experience with hundreds of attendees at the conference.

Watt speaks about the value of giving back to the community and raising three upstanding sons, and prominent physicians from UTMB Health address topics of health and wellness that are of interest to today’s women.
