Extended Deadline--Call for Papers
The Pennsylvania Hospital, Philadelphia, will host its fifth annual History of Women’s Health Conference on Wednesday, April 7, 2010. We invite interested persons to send a one to two page proposal or abstract of your topic by Monday, November 16, 2009 for consideration. The History of Women’s Health Conference focuses on women’s health issues from the late 18th century to the present. This conference encourages interdisciplinary work. Special consideration this year will be given to topics that address women’s health and the urban environment.
The 2010 conference will differ slightly from years past. We are pleased to join with the University of Pennsylvania in partnership with the International Council on Women’s Health Issues (ICOWHI). ICOWHI’s 18th Congress on women’s health issues, titled “Cities and Women’s Health: Global Perspectives” will take place April 7th to the 10th 2010 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania Hospital’s History of Women’s Health Conference will be a pre-conference elective for anyone attending the ICOWHI Congress. As always, the Pennsylvania Hospital History of Women’s Health Conference is open, free of charge, to anyone interested in the history or present state of women’s health. The fifth annual conference will begin at 7:30am with our keynote and conclude at noon. A continental breakfast will follow the keynote. A short tour of historic Pine Building will be offered at the conclusion of the conference. CEU’s will be offered again.
