PV Women’s Network Speaker Series – Part One
Speaker: Elizabeth Manley
Topic: Striving for a Healthier You: Fit, Healthier and Happier Than Ever
Having comeback from depression to win an Olympic Medal, Manley speaks out on her struggles with Depression, and how she came back from it. Manley outlines the stigma of mental illness and talks about dealing with it and helping others.
Post Olympics, Manley shares her experiences with losing loved ones to many of today’s diseases. Manley speaks about her experience with losing her mother to Ovarian Cancer, and her father from Alzheimer’s. She opens her heart and talks candidly about taking on the role as caregiver.
Like many people, Manley had a long struggle with weight issues. She presents on when and why her struggle with her weight began, her associated health challenges, as well as the social stigma associated with being overweight (especially for an Olympian). Although it’s an everyday challenge, her presentation ends with discussing how she deals with these obstacles in her way to become more fit, healthier and happier than ever!
