New Horizons Healthcare has made women’s health a priority. The non-profit has opened a new center called “Well Woman Care.” Shelley Olds picked up cycling in her late 20s, but that did not stop her from representing the United States in the 2012 Olympics.
Preventative Care can be difficult to afford if you are under-insured or do not have insurance at all. New Horizons Healthcare’s mission is to help people in that position. Their new women’s health center is an effort to fill a void in the community.
Host Kathy Heberle talks with Family Nurse Practition Terri Gibson about the services the “Well Woman Center” offers as well as how to stay healthy in every stage of your life.
Cycling to new heights
Shelley Olds started cycling at 26. The former college athlete needed a challenge to replace competitive soccer. The more she rode the more she wanted to ride and ride faster and farther. So her future husband planted the seed and told her she should train for the Olympics.
Olds tells host Kathy Heberle what it took to reach that goal and her her goals for the Roanoke College cycling team.
Olds is a Roanoke College graduate with a long list of athletic accomplishments. Those accomplishments landed her in the schools sports hall of fame.
