A Woman's Journey - Baltimore

Empowering Women to Make Informed Health Care Decisions
Harriet Legum

A Personal Message From Our National Chairs

Dear Friend,

Despite the years that have intervened since the first A Woman’s Journey in 1995, our mission has remained unchanged: educate ourselves about advances in medicine so we are empowered to make the right decisions for our families and ourselves.

During these two and a half decades, we have traversed the globe and witnessed vast medical advances that were not even conceivable 25 years ago. Precision medicine, DNA testing, robotics, artificial intelligence, minimally invasive procedures, liquid biopsies and immunotherapy, among others, are changing the quality and duration of our lives.

Our journey is far from over. There are new roads to pursue and we hope you will join us. Learn about the microbiome, new evidence and recommendations about the use of aspirin to prevent heart disease, research to reduce the risk of dementia, discoveries about your brain and other compelling topics.

This year, Johns Hopkins Medicine’s health conference for women has a new look! After a quarter century, we have given A Woman’s Journey a face-lift. Meet 50 Johns Hopkins faculty physicians. Select three of 24 blockbuster seminars. Get the opportunity to pose questions to 25 additional specialists.

Join us. Devote this day to yourself and those you love. You will find it exhilarating, stimulating, empowering and, for some, lifesaving.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, November 23, at the Hilton Baltimore Hotel.

Yours in health,

Harriet C. Legum and Kelly Geer Ripken
National Chairs
