The latest findings on women’s health and new advances in preventing, detecting and treating women’s diseases will be presented during this one-day symposium sponsored by Johns Hopkins Medicine.
Hopkins faculty will present 10 hour-long seminars covering new medical treatments and information on diseases and health issues affecting women. Symposium content includes nutrition, emotional health, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, hearing loss and minimally invasive treatments for facial rejuvenation and body contouring.
Keynote speaker for the event is Lillie D. Shockney, R.N., B.S., and M.A.S., administrative director of the Johns Hopkins Avon Foundation Breast Center and assistant professor of surgery and gynecology and obstetrics. Shockney, a breast cancer survivor, will share her poignant yet entertaining tale of surviving breast cancer with humor during her presentation titled “Stealing Second Base.”
For the last 13 years, the annual health symposium, which takes place every November in Baltimore, has attracted nearly 1,000 women.
