Smart these days is an advocate for child abduction awareness, recovery programs and national legislation.
Her harrowing nine-month ordeal, beginning with abduction from her bedroom at age 14 and concluding with her return by police to her family, led her to create the Elizabeth Smart Foundation. The organization's aim is to assist young people to avoid or recover from violent events.
Smart regularly helps promote the national Amber Alert system, the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act and other safety legislation to help prevent abductions. She also is a correspondent for ABC News.
Prior to her speaking engagement, Smart will appear at Healthy Woman's Ladies' Night Out event, which begins at 5:30 p.m. at the conference center. It includes gourmet hors d'oeuvres, wine tasting, giveaways, health information and screenings.
Ladies' Night Out tickets are $10 and are available at themedcenter.net/healthywoman or by calling (870) 864-3245.
