Speech Topics

Heart Health Awareness

When it comes to heart health, Elisabeth Röhm can speak from a multitude of experiences. After losing her mother and aunt to heart disease at a young age, Röhm has worked to turn her grief into empowerment. Röhm can also relate to the lives of those living a life aware of their heart disease, after witnessing her father deal with triple-bypass surgery at the young age of 40. Elisabeth has since encouraged healthy living and habits to prevent surgeries like her father’s. Elisabeth Röhm knows that heart health hits close to home and she seeks to prevent it from spreading to the homes of others.

Parenthood: An Identity Changing Journey

Elisabeth Röhm shares her personal story of infertility and completely opens up to her audiences. Whether it is her giving advice to younger women, advocating that healthcare cover more of the cost of alternative fertility treatments, or inspiring other infertile women to never give up, Elisabeth has a voice that deserves to be heard. She knows the stigma that comes with the topic of infertility – it’s taboo and not many are comfortable discussing it. However, the topic of infertility is one of the most important to be discussed right now. In a society where it’s becoming the norm to settle down in your thirties, we cannot afford to overlook the science behind having children young. What Elisabeth Röhm communicates through her speeches, most importantly, is this one message – be proactive.

Overcoming a Troubled Childhood & Adversity

Most know Elisabeth Röhm as the successful & tenacious A.D.A from the successful TV drama, Law and Order. It is hard to imagine that she was once a former juvenile detention resident. Coming from a far from perfect household, Elisabeth found herself battling deep rooted anger issues that eventually got her kicked out of the public school at the age of 13. Röhm credits all of her success to her mother remaining relentless in raising her. Instead of giving up on her, Elisabeth’s mother aggressively invested in resources to educate and save her daughter from her own self destructive tendencies.

Balancing Being a Working Single Mother & Empowering Self

Being a single-parent, Rohm is no stranger to the sacrifices mothers make on a daily basis. For the sake of always putting her child first, she feels it is her responsibility as a parent to be in the best shape of her life mentally and physically. Daily, she is committed to self care through practices that include meditation, yoga and physical fitness. She feels it is her obligation to share her journey through motherhood and is committed to inspiring women to find healing, balance and support within their own communities. Röhm believes that together, we can empower each other through togetherness, open discussion and creating villages of powerful women as support teams.

Women’s Empowerment

Having hit rock bottom, Elisabeth is a true testament of what it takes to turn adversity into triumph. As glamorous as her job seemed, Röhm fell on hard times at age 34, which left her unemployed and bankrupted, all while finding out that she was infertile. Elisabeth embarked on another uphill battle, however, she followed the example of her beloved mother, remaining faithful in her journey to conceive. For Elisabeth, this was yet another opportunity to prove to herself and turn the negatives in her life to positives. She wrote the book Baby Steps to connect with other women who, like her, experience infertility, which can be a shameful and taboo subject for women to talk about candidly.
