Circle of Health International Announces First Annual Women’s Health Summit.
|Bridges: Women’s Health Care as an Agent of Change|
|Circle of Health International is happy to announce we will be holding our 1st annual women’s health summit in June of 2010! The summit will be held on June 4th, 2010 at Boston University’s School of Public Health. This year our theme will be Bridges: Women’s Health Care as an Agent of Change. The conference will feature guest lecturers from various fields in maternal child health, and will also reach out to a wide audience of health care providers, public health professionals, women’s studies professionals, and the general public. Each of these voices brings something unique to the table, allowing us to collaborate across disciplines to generate discussion and new solutions to old problems. There will be plenty of opportunities to network, learn from each other, and we hope that participants will leave feeling empowered to make real change.
Our summit objectives are as follows:
As part of our summit, we would like to issue a call for posters. These posters will be displayed during the summit, and are a great opportunity for you to present your current programs and work to like-minded professionals in a supportive and friendly environment. We are also looking for sponsors and will have space available for product displays. Please contact Nechama at nwildanah[at]cohintl.org for more details regarding the poster presentation guidelines and sponsorship opportunities.
We have a very full day planned for Friday, June 4th, networking/collaboration opportunities, and poster presentations. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Admission is to be determined but a limited number of FREE seats will be available for students. We are also hoping to offer CEU’s for midwives, raffle prizes, and more! Please contact Rachel atrbedenbaugh[at]cohintl.org with any questions. We look forward to meeting you in Boston.
Location: BU School of Public Health
