(WJBK) - The emotional, cultural, familial, personal and societal issues impacting the financial well-being of women will be addressed at Michigan's Money Smart Week® Women's Conference, 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 12, at Detroit Unity Temple.   

According to Michigan Money Smart Week Chair, Kelly Masters, Detroit Unity Temple is demonstrating real leadership by organizing this Women's Conference. She told FOX 2, "In a time when women continue to be squeezed by simultaneously caring for their children and aging loved ones, experience high levels of stress that impacts their physical health, continue to make less money on average than their male counterparts, and are often not focusing on their own long-term financial needs, the holistic approach of this conference is timely and on mark."

Detroit Unity Temple Pastor Gregory Guice added, "The strength of our church, our communities and society at large, relies on the well-being of our members. Women tend to be the caregivers of others, and have unique needs for information and resources. By hosting this financial conference focusing on the money issues faced by women, Detroit Unity Temple will help fill this need."

An esteemed female panel of experts will address many of the financial situations uniquely pertaining to women such as: costs of caregiving, financial personality types, children, estate planning, retirement, employment options, health/wealth and more. Experts from: Michigan State University Extension, Henry Ford Hospital, Family Harmony: Eldercare and Caregiver Solutions, the Law Office of Adrienne Watts, One Step Ahead, Inc., Thomas Financial Group, Shelborne Development Company, and The Water Station will share their expertise and answer participant questions. Concurrent with this session are money-themed activities for children of all ages at the same venue. A resource fair accompanies the event.

The event organizer and moderator, Francine Guice, is an attorney, Realtor®, and professor at Keller Graduate School of Management and Oakland University.

    Polluted Gowanus Canal doesn't scare away neighborhood development

    Every day, those who live and work in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn drive and bike and walk across their canal, growing a little more accustomed to but no less disgusted by its scent and appearance. Once the busiest canal in the United States, the Gowanus now bears the distinction as perhaps the most polluted body of water in the nation. No one knows exactly how polluted because few have summoned enough courage to dive into its murky depths to investigate.
