The Right Message, the Right Messenger

In Women's Health on March 23, 2010 at 3:31 pm

It takes more than just a program in an urban location to make a difference in women’s health.

It takes advocacy to change stale policies and specific ideas to advance smart programs

One panel at the 18th Annual International Congress on Women’s Health Issues will look at advocacy groups in the US and the importance of strategies for successful initiatives.

It’s called Advancing Women’s Health in Urban Environments Through Public Health Advocacies. Panelists on the Thursday, April 8, session represent groups involved in 3 key issues in women’s health:

  •  Maternal and child health
  • Intimate partner violence and environmental health
  • Environmental health and justice

Women’s health in urban environments involves more than just dispensing medical care. It includes prevention, intervention and advocacy, issues that will be underscored by this panel.
