"As wives, mothers and professionals living in Southern California, women are constantly barraged with priority lists that sometimes put their needs at the bottom," said Dotty Hagmier, RN and founder of Moms in Charge. "A Day for M.E. has been tailored to give women a 'day off' while also providing them with vital information to help them continue to seek health and wellness not just for themselves, but for their families."
