If you are a woman, you are at greater risk of many serious health conditions. Some are obvious—breast and cervical cancer, for example—others not so obvious.

Autoimmune diseases, lung cancer and other ailments are high on the list of health threats for women. Is it biology, hormones or stress? We will only understand the basis of these diseases and how to effectively treat them through research. Join our top scientists as they share their latest research on diseases that uniquely affect women more than men.

A Q&A session will follow the presentation and will give you an opportunity to personally connect with our scientists and have your questions answered.
