Upcoming sessions

In Women's Health on March 15, 2010 at 5:08 pm

There’s plenty of meat in this year’s international women’s health conference.

Among the upcoming sessions:

  • Domestic violence experienced by Mexican American women and among urban women in Bangladesh.
  • Transforming urban environments and making them healthier places for women to live.
  • How homeless women congregate in cities where finding gynecologic care is difficult.
  • The lack of services for older, elderly women who live alone in cities.

Urban pollutions are growing at an unprecedented pace. Although much is known about the health of women, far less is known about the practice of public health and the health impact of living in an urban environment.

What is the answer? We hope to make big strides in identifying the problems and looking for ways to solve them.
