Neurologist speaker for WEW gathering

The Dubois County women’s leadership organization, Women Empowering Women, will gather on Wednesday, Dec. 9, at the St. Joseph Church Parish Center, 1029 Kundek St., Jasper. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m. for networking before the meeting begins at 11:45 a.m. This event is open to prospective and current WEW members.

The mission of Women Empowering Women is to inspire women in business to reach their highest potential by instilling confidence, building networks, and promoting community in Dubois County. Membership is open to any woman in business who lives or works in Dubois County.

Dr. Kristi Nord, neurologist at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, will give a presentation on the Bible study “Me, Myself and Lies” by Jennifer Rotchschild.

Rothschild went blind during high school due to a genetic disease, and her life experiences provide tremendous spiritual inspirations that are incredibly unique throughout this study. Dr. Nord will lead attendees through Rothschild’s thought closet makeover and give guidance on keeping God in the center of one’s thoughts. Dr. Nord will discuss applications of these tools through some of the trials in her life. She also explains some of the intriguing science behind the power of thoughts in the brain. 

Dr. Nord is a native Texan who majored in biomedical engineering at Yale University and graduated with honors from Penn State College of medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania. She completed her neurology residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and is a neurologist at Memorial Hospital. She also is an assistant professor of neurology at Indiana University School of Medicine. She and her husband of 15 years, Jon, reside in Jasper with their four children.
