LIV: Living in Vitality


Vitality is the power to live or grow; the capacity for survival or for the continuation of a meaningful or purposeful existence. It’s a state of mind, a state of being. Everyone chooses how they live. Are you surrounded by chaos and excuses or do you seize the moment and take advantage of everything life has to offer?

Shawnee Mission Health and our community partners are pleased to introduce LIV: Living in Vitality. Through our uplifting and educational annual conference, wellness events, activities and more, our mission is to empower Kansas City women live healthier lives physically, mentally and spiritually.

Whether you’re juggling responsibilities as a new mom, or a woman looking to remain energized well into retirement, LIV can give you the tools to succeed. We invite you to step away for a moment to take time for yourself. We invite you to LIV.

2018 LIV Co-Chairs Twyla Rist and Sam Rist

Twyla Rist
I have been fortunate enough to be involved in LIV as a volunteer and an attendee over the past 20 years. What an honor it is to co-chair this impactful event with my youngest daughter, Samantha Rist. LIV has a special place in my life: as a result of attending in 2002, I was able to recognize that I was having a heart attack in 2003. What I learned in LIV allowed me to understand my symptoms and act quickly. LIV made a meaningful difference in my life, and - as we hear from our attendees and volunteers each year - on the lives of countless others, too. Our goal for 2018 is to expand our community reach, and to empower each of you to live your fullest life. Let's make it happen!

Sam Rist
As someone who has attended past LIV events with Twyla as my mother, mentor, and friend, I am thrilled to co-chair the LIV 2018 event with Twyla Rist! I am committed to the empowerment of, and focus on, women and their health in my career and professional network. Getting to channel this passion into an event that so strongly advocates for women across the board is a true honor, and an exciting challenge. LIV is the epitome of a collaborative, positive step in a progressive direction that encourages women to lead healthier, more balanced lives. Our goal this year is to shed light on wellness both in and out of the home and office, and to empower each of you to decide what balance means for you, and how to achieve it. Looking forward to another amazing LIV with each of you!
