If you haven’t heard of Women’s Health Conversations yet, you could be missing out on one of the most empowering and insightful events of the year! Women’s Health Conversations is the first of its kind consumer Women’s Health Conference specifically to educate, empower and entertain smart, savvy women who profoundly influence the health of everyone they touch.
Think about it: women make more than 80 percent of the health care decisions in this country, not only for themselves, but for everyone they touch in their lives, including their children, spouses, parents, friends, and even co-workers. It is women who impact individual health and, therefore, the nation’s health. By transforming health, women transform our culture and our economy.
Join us this weekend for a national conversation about all things health–whether you’re seeking specific advice for a certain area of health care, or you simply want to become a part of an empowering community of women dedicated to educate and inspire others all across the country.
