The BET Foundation hosted 7th Annual Women's Health Symposium, connecting women with local health experts to educate them on how to make healthier lifestyle choices.  Philadelphia was the host city of the 2010 Symposium.  The BET Foundation catered to the minds, bodies, and souls of the participants by providing healthy cooking demonstrations, free health screenings, a gospel performance by Deborah Cox, and blissful massages.  Pampering gave way to important lessons about obesity, high blood pressure, and heart disease prevention, which so many of African American women suffer disproportionately.  Other Symposium stops in 2010 included:  Chicago, Washington, DC, and Atlanta.
