Hosted by Virginia Commonwealth University, Health of Women 2022 was designed with a valued approach of addressing women’s health across the life span and addressed the challenges and nuances of sex and gender medicine. This day-and-a-half virtual conference is filled with engaging lectures and discussions. Hosts have carefully crafted an agenda catering to the learning needs of primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants and other health care professionals focused on women’s health in family practice, internal medicine, and obstetrics and gynecology. The full conference took place on June 23 – 24, and an event schedule can be found here.
SWHR hosted a pre-conference symposium on June 23, 2022, 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. ET, focused on “Emerging Topics in Women’s Health.”
SWHR has a rich history of convening interdisciplinary groups of researchers, health care providers, patient advocates, and policy leaders to address diseases and conditions that disproportionately, differently, or exclusively affect women – from autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases to gynecologic and maternal health. This pre-conference symposium will chronicle advancements in women’s health care and research over recent decades. Panelists will present how researchers, providers, patients, and policy stakeholders have and must continue to work together by providing examples of initiatives, strategies, and successful outcomes for key women’s health issues. Attendees will then engage in a live Q&A session with the panel to discuss approaches to address persistent gaps and disparities in women’s health.
