A Woman's Journey - Baltimore

Dear Friends,

Many physicians and researchers cannot recall another time when so many opportunities to understand and successfully treat disease were within their grasp. Our understanding and practice of medicine is progressing as never before. Some of these advancements are the result of computing, technology and collaborations across specialties and institutions, while others are built upon the discoveries of those that preceded this decade. Regardless, this is a dramatic time. Immunotherapy, liquid biopsies and biomarkers are among the medical discoveries that will affect our lives and the lives of those we love. As life expectancy continues to increase, our challenge is how to harness the information and medical advances to live well and improve our health.

This year’s annual Johns Hopkins Medicine women’s health conference, A Woman’s Journey, is devoted to sharing insights about advances in medicine. In addition to the 32 seminars, numerous Johns Hopkins physicians will be on hand to speak with you about their particular specialties as we introduce “Dessert with the Experts.”  Meet doctors from across many specialties to ask them general questions about discovery and health. This is a rare opportunity to learn from Johns Hopkins physicians and each other.

We hope you will join us for an inspiring and exhilarating day. Come alone, or bring your sister, mother or friend. Take the day for yourself, rejuvenate your mind and spirit, and return home with lessons that will last a lifetime.

We look forward to seeing you at this award-winning program on Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016, at the Hilton Baltimore.

Yours in health,

Harriet C. Legum                    Kelly Geer Ripken
