A Woman's Journey Tampa, St. Petersburg & Sarasota



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 harken 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 medical advances to make informed decisions for those we love. We therefore invite you to join us on a unique journey. Listen to three extraordinary presentations by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine researchers. Learn about new research revealing the benefits of exercise, things you should know about your brain and the impact of stress,

Prior to the presentations, you also will have the opportunity to meet many of the outstanding physicians practicing at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and our community centers.

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 exhilarating, stimulating, empowering and for some families, lifesaving.

Yours in health,

Alysia Ekizian
