A New Year: A Dialogue on Women’s Health

 

Cannon Caucus Room, 345, Cannon House Office Building

Monday, January 24, 2005, 11:30 pm – 1:00 pm

 

The Jacobs Institute of Women's Health brought together policymakers and organizations working on women's health to engage in a dialogue on overarching priorities and share information on what organizations and policymakers are currently doing to advance women's health.  We envision building a stronger community and developing a better understanding for each other's goals and work.   To begin this dialogue, JIWH convened a panel to discuss the current state of women's health, women and health care reform, and the opinions women have about women's health.  Our goal is to foster better engagement in intelligently going forward to advance our goals.  

 

Speakers for the briefing included:

  • Paula Johnson, MD, MPH, Brigham & Women’s Hospital (To download Dr. Johnson's powerpoint presentation, please click here.)

  • Anne Kasper, PhD, senior editor of Breast Cancer: Society Shapes an Epidemic.

  • Nicole Crozier, MBA/MS, Director of Programs, Women & Philanthropy

  • Mary Woolley, President, Research!America (To download Ms. Woolley's powerpoint presentation, please click here.)

  • Moderator: Sara Rosenbaum, JD, George Washington University School of Public Health
