Leading Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) experts will discuss innovations in women's healthcare during A Woman's Journey on Tuesday, May 3 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Attendance is offered in person at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Road, or via Zoom.

A Woman's Journey empowers women to make informed healthcare decision by gathering top experts in medicine from across disciplines to help educate women about medical advances and innovations in women's health. This annual event brings together women from across the National Capital Region to gain timely and important insights into new technologies and research that can improve their health and to speak one-on-one with Johns Hopkins physicians.

This year's A Woman's Journey features radiologist Elliot Fishman, M.D., sharing how the advancement of technology is revolutionizing the diagnosis and treatment of cancer; infectious disease researcher Cynthia Sears, M.D., describing how probiotics can help modify our microbiome to promote good health; and Judith Goldstein, O.D., speaking about rehabilitative strategies to restore sight or slow disease progression. The event will be moderated by Amna Nawaz, chief correspondent and substitute anchor for the PBS NewsHour.

"This is an incredible opportunity to hear directly from top medical experts from Johns Hopkins Medicine," Beth Glassman, co-chair of A Woman's Journey for the Greater Washington Area. "I encourage all the women I meet to take this opportunity to hear about the latest advances in healthcare from top leaders in their field actively involved in cutting-edge research. They will have the opportunity to meet and interact with an educated, knowledgeable, interested and engaged audience."

A Woman's Journey in the National Capital Region is hosted by Suburban Hospital, Sibley Memorial Hospital and Johns Hopkins Community Physicians.
