CONYERS -- State Rep. Pam Dickerson is sponsoring a Women's Wellness 2012 event June 23, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Salem High School.
The event is held in partnership with Newton Medical Center, Rockdale Medical Center, Dr. Rogsbert Phillips-Reed and Dr. Yara Robertson and the Gwinnett, Rockdale, Newton County Health Departments.
