The Lodge at Woodloch Set to Host Inaugural Women’s Wellness Week

The Lodge at Woodloch is excited to announce its first-ever Women’s Wellness Week, scheduled from May 17th to May 25th. This exclusive event aims to celebrate women’s health and well-being through a series of enriching activities, workshops, and experiences designed to empower, educate, and inspire. Throughout the week, guests will have the opportunity to engage with leading experts in nutrition, fitness, mindfulness, and self-care.

Anne Fulenwider, Co-Founder and CO-CEO of Alloy Women’s Health, takes center stage as the featured presenter of the week. With a distinguished background as a former magazine editor at The Paris Review, Vanity Fair, and as editor-in-chief of Marie Claire, Anne’s journey into women’s health was driven by personal loss and a commitment to reshape discussions around women’s post-reproductive health. Drawing from research by Dr. Sharon Malone, Chief Medical Director at Alloy Women’s Health, and Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, clinical professor at Yale University of Medicine, Anne will delve into the complexities of menopause, exploring topics such as hormone replacement therapy and non-hormonal alternatives. She and health journalist and integrative wellness coach Sheryl Kraft will also address common queries surrounding menopause, offering valuable insights and guidance.
