    Hundreds of women filled the MPEC today for a day dedicated to them.
    KFDX is proud to be one of the sponsors of the annual "Women's Expo", which provides ladies with several different health screenings so they could make sure they're in tip-top shape.
    United Regional Hospital representatives offered free blood pressure checks, and women could also undergo testing for a type of disease in their arteries, as well as testing their cholesterol.
    Carolyn Allison, who's a United Regional volunteer, says, "This is something that might save a person's life.  All these screenings are free, and it's just a wonderful thing the hospital does for the community."
    Hospital representatives also taught about the importance of a yearly mammogram and how to safeguard themselves against breast cancer.
    Of course no Women's Expo complete without plenty of pampering.
    Those in attendance also experienced the all-important retail therapy.
