The Second Annual HealthSmart Expo on October 8 will kick off with a lunch featuring Barbara Dooley as guest speaker at 11:30 a.m. at the Georgia Mountains Center. Barbara, wife of Vince Dooley, now retired, legendary football coach of the University of Georgia Bulldogs and Director of Athletics, has been making people laugh for years with her Southern tales of football, family and foolishness.

Cost is $15 per person, and reservations are required.
