A Woman's Journey

Dear Friend,

The original doors that opened The Johns Hopkins Hospital to millions of patients, generations of medical students and to new discoveries, were recently unearthed from storage, refinished and displayed at the hospital. The oversized hand-carved oak doors harkened back to a time in the history of medicine predating the discovery of antibiotics, rubber gloves and development of CPR and sequencing the genome for cancer. Since 1889, this threshold has ushered in scientific knowledge and innovations that today include precision medicine, immunotherapy, and medical breakthroughs that offer promise for the future.

As women who care for our families, and ourselves we too have a responsibility. For us, our personal experiences underscore the need to stay abreast of these medical advances to make informed decisions for those we love. We therefore invite you to join us on a unique journey. Choose two of the six extraordinary presentations by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine faculty. Learn about the new things you should know about your brain, and the threat of lung cancer in women who never smoked, and other pressing topics.

We know you have many choices of luncheons and lectures during our season, but this program is distinct. Join us. Walk through the doors of A Woman’s Journey. We urge you to come alone or with a friend or colleague.  Devote this morning to yourself. You will find it enlightening, empowering and for some, lifesaving.

Yours in health,

Erin McGould         Debra Vasilopoulos
