Women's Health Conference

 

May 7-9, 2014

DoubleTree Hotel, Burlington, VT

 

Overview

The breadth and complexity of issues surrounding women's health care makes it increasingly difficult for practitioners to remain current. While breast and ovarian cancer are important concerns to women, cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in women. The goal of this conference is to incorporate important health care issues from various specialties and illustrate how they uniquely impact women.

This conference is designed to bring together experts from a variety of disciplines to discuss advances in women's health care in one concise meeting. Primary care physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals involved in caring for women will benefit from participating in this conference.

Objectives

At the conclusion of this conference, participants should be able to:

• Describe and incorporate Joint National Committee 8 guidelines for the management of hypertension and new treatment guidelines for hypercholesterolemia into your clinical practice.
• Describe screening and diagnosis of breast and ovarian cancer in high-risk populations.
