As we lament the thousands of lives lost globally to COVID-19, 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 a pandemic, the effects of inflammation, our microbiome, early cancer symptoms and hundreds of other topics related to medical discoveries and advancements.
Certainly, this year is no time to abandon our goal. We invite you to virtually attend a program, listen to our monthly 20-minute podcasts, receive monthly e-letters about medical findings, and participate in live 60-minute webcasts where you can pose questions to the speakers. Check out our menu drop down and this page for all your options.
Regardless how you obtain your information, A Woman’s Journey will enrich your knowledge and, for some, may be lifesaving.
Be in touch.
Best of health,
Kelly Geer Ripken

The day gives me a chance to learn, to be inspired to make changes, to have discussions with others, to be grateful for my health, and appreciate the importance of good health care.
