As we lament the thousands of lives lost globally to COVID-19 and health disparities highlighted by the Corona virus, we have much for which to be grateful: first responders, front-line health care workers and laborers who sustain us during this pandemic, antibody tests and vaccines emerging from laboratories, and daily life — albeit different. As a society, we also have refocused on what is truly important: the grace of humanity and the value of our health.
For more than 25 years, Johns Hopkins Medicine’s women’s health program, A Woman’s Journey, has endeavored to improve your well-being through health education. Our Johns Hopkins experts have talked about the possibility of pandemics, the effects of inflammation, our microbiome, and hundreds of other topics related to medical discoveries and advancements.
Certainly, this year is no time to abandon our goal. Since many of us remain uneasy attending large public gatherings, Johns Hopkins Medicine, including Sibley Memorial and Suburban hospitals, Johns Hopkins Community Physicians and faculty specialty practices, humbly invite you to join our virtual A Woman’s Journey, devoted to a better understanding of your health.
Register online for the program. Participating will be easy. Your confirmation letter will include a link to join the morning’s LIVE program. You will be able to pose questions in advance or in real time for the Johns Hopkins presenters.
We anticipate returning to in-person forums in 2021, and look forward to gathering at that time. Until then, grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us for A Woman’s Journey. It will enrich your knowledge and, for some, may be lifesaving.
Best of health,
Beth Glassman, Gail Glick and Laurie Singer
