T.J. Samson Women's Conference registration now open

From Stacey Biggs

Registration is now open for the 2023 T.J. Samson Women's Conference. Presented in partnership with the Glasgow BPW, this year's conference will be held on Thursday, March 16, 2023, from 8amCT to 3:30pmCT at the Cave City Convention Center.

Registration can be completed online at or by calling Mollie Felkins at 270.651.4522. Sherri Shines Award nominations are also available online at, and they are due on Friday, February 17, 2023.

The keynote speaker will be LaDonna Gatlin, who will share her joyful message, Sometimes You Just Gotta Laugh! Born into "showbiz," LaDonna grew up onstage performing with her brothers, the legendary Gatlin Brothers. Her presentations resonate with audiences all over the country because she makes people laugh, lightens their load, and leaves them with a song in their hearts. And, they always learn something in the process.

The morning session will be The Big M: Managing Menopause, presented by Casey Sacia, WHNP, who works with the T.J. Women's Health team. Casey will share important information about signs that menopause may be near, how to deal with the symptoms, and much more. The afternoon session will be Living Stronger: Strengthening Your Way to a Better Quality of Life. Emily Bybee, PT, DPT, with T.J. Rehab Services, will share ways to help the body to be stronger, which helps everyone to feel better along life's journey.

One of the highlights of the conference is celebrating the Sherri Shines Award winners. Each year, two inspiring and deserving women are chosen to receive complete makeovers. The Sherri Shines Awards are given in memory and in celebration of Sherri Davis. Sherri was an outstanding, much-loved employee at T.J. Samson who passed away following a brave battle with cancer.

Registration will also include health screenings, lunch, style show, shopping and health information vendors, and lots of door prizes.
