Women’s Health Issues Workshop
CTSI is sponsoring a workshop on women’s health issues on Tuesday, December 17, 2013. The event will run from 8 am – 3 pm and will be held at Marquette University’s Alumni Memorial Union Ballroom.
The goal of the workshop is to facilitate interdisciplinary research collaborations across CTSI partner institutions for research related to women’s health. Consistent with recommendations in a recent Institute of Medicine report, Clinical Preventive Services for Women: Closing the Gaps, 2011, the general theme of the workshop will be “preventive science” across the lifespan of women.
Dr. Magda Peck, Dean of the UW-Milwaukee School of Public Health and member of the IOM committee that wrote the report, will provide an introductory state-of-art overview of this theme.
The day will consist of plenary sessions and breakout groups that will address topics such as cognitive impairment, obesity, malignancy, and skeletal fragility.
Please park in the 16th Street Parking Structure, located at 749 N. 16th Street.
