The History of Women’s Health Conference focuses on women’s health issues from the late 18th century to the present.
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 the historic Pine Building will be offered at the conclusion of the conference.
Our keynote speaker will be Rosaly Correa-de-Araujo, M.D., M.Sc., Ph.D. As the Director of the Office of the Americas within the Office of the Secretary, Office of Global Health Affairs at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Dr. Correa oversees the development of major research and global health initiatives in partnership with Ministries of Health in the Americas region on topics of relevance and common interest including women’s health issues. Dr. Correa-de-Araujo’s presentation will be Cities and Women’s Health: A Global Perspective on Equality Across Gender, Race/Ethnicity, Age and Disability Status.
Special thanks to the Professional Staff of Pennsylvania Hospital for again providing financial assistance. The Conference is jointly presented by the Professional Staff of the Pennsylvania Hospital, the Pennsylvania Hospital Historic Collections and the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department.
