Holy Name Medical Center and TOWN AUDI PRESENT
(201) Magazine's 8th Women for Women EVENT – "YOUR TIME IS NOW!"
Women attend to inspire, learn, connect and empower one another –

Exposure North Jersey will present its 8th Women for Women networking event on January 18 at The Terrace at Biagio's in Paramus, NJ from 6 to 9 p.m. The event will feature open networking and a panel of inspiring women who will tell their stories of living in the moment around the topic of "Your Time is Now!" This event is for #Everywoman.

A New Year creates a feeling of obligation to finally accomplish that task, reach that dream, start fresh and move forward. Women for Women was created to help women help one another, make new connections, get that extra encouragement and gain a sense of perspective on their own thoughts based on the interactives during the event.

At the forefront of cardiovascular health, Holy Name Medical Center's Dr. Anuj Shah Anju, MD, FACC Cardiac and Endovascular Interventionalist will educate guests about the importance of heart. Holy Name Medical Center will also have health professionals on hand to answer questions related to women's health.

Town Audi will be featuring their Q3 and Q7 2017 models and will offer guests the opportunity to win $100 gift cards.
