Events focus on women's health
It's not every day that an actress of Diane Keaton's stature rolls into town, but she'll be here soon.
Keaton gained fame through her roles in “The Godfather” trilogy, “Play It Again, Sam,” “Annie Hall,” “Looking for Mr. Goodbar,” “Father of the Bride” and more. She has directed films, including an episode of “Twin Peaks,” and penned an autobiography, “Then Again,” that was published in 2011.
Next month, she'll be in Oklahoma City to launch the Integris Women's Health Forum, which features two weeks of sessions on health, exercise, nutrition and the latest medical breakthroughs. The sessions will be held at a variety of venues.
Keaton, the keynote speaker, will discuss “being fearless in life.”
Other events include:
• Women's self-defense training.
• A discussion about obesity, held in Spanish.
• “Avoiding a Brain Wreck,” a discussion of brain injuries and stroke.
• High tea with three doctors at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.
• A presentation by Dr. Michelle May, author of “Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat,” on avoiding the “eat-repent-repeat” cycle of dieting.
• Informational sessions on cancer, sex, breast care, carpal tunnel, stress, grocery shopping and more.
Sessions begin Sept. 8 and continue through Sept. 22.
Reservations are required for all events. Most are free (including Keaton's talk on at 5 p.m. Sept. 9, at the Civic Center Music Hall); some require a registration fee. Sessions are expected to fill quickly, so make reservations now.

Charity walk and silent auction
If you can walk a mile, then you can help the impoverished in Norman, Moore and Purcell.
The Friends of the Poor Walk and Silent Auction provides funds to the Oklahoma South Central District Council of St. Vincent de Paul. Those funds are distributed through food pantries, housing assistance, disaster relief, job training and placement, clothing, transportation, utility costs and medicine.
Contributions also fund thrift stores, home visits, elder care and youth outreach.
Last year, the South Central council distributed about $282,000 and helped 11,778 people.
