Foundation Event to Focus on Life Planning for Women (and Men)

| Date Posted: 3/6/2014

PINEHURST – Every woman (and man) strives to keep her house in order – literally and figuratively. However, it is often a challenging game of life that can be stressful, worrisome and overwhelming, especially if you also have to deal with issues related to aging parents.

A life-planning session hosted by The Foundation of FirstHealth will focus on the importance of women taking control of their own life planning and provide ideas and strategies that will allow women to move forward with more confidence and a positive approach. The session is scheduled for Friday, March 14, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Country Club of North Carolina. Lunch will follow.

During the “Keeping Your House in Order” program, Deborah Jacobs will discuss “Taking Control of Your Life Planning” while Suzie Humphreys will add humor with “Facing Life’s Challenges with a Smile.”

Jacobs is the author of a best-selling book called “Estate Planning Smarts” in which she draws on more than a decade of writing about the stressful issues that surround life planning. Her articles have appeared in The New York Times, Bloomberg Wealth Manager, BusinessWeek and many other publications.

She is currently a senior editor at Forbes, where she writes a popular blog about personal finance for Baby Boomers.

Humphreys spent 20 years in radio and hosted a television talk show. Through these experiences, she developed a knack for being uproariously funny, blatantly honest and plain spoken. Whether it is the challenge of change or acceptance in relationships or situations in the home or on the job, she helps people rise to the occasion with all of the vigor and enthusiasm that life demands.

As the catalyst for the philanthropy that has led FirstHealth of the Carolinas to become one of the finest health care systems in the nation, The Foundation of FirstHealth is dedicated to providing educational opportunities for the community as they relate to health and well-being. Anyone interested in attending this session on life planning should call The Foundation of FirstHealth at (910) 695-7510 or email
