The latest findings on women’s health issues and new advances in preventing, detecting and treating diseases in women were presented in late January during Palm Beach’s second annual “A Woman’s Journey” symposium sponsored by Johns Hopkins Medicine.  The five hour conference took place at the Raymond F. Kravis Center’s Cohen Pavilion.


Approximately 250 conference attendees listened to Johns Hopkins doctors and specialists discuss new medical treatments and important health issues facing women, such as: diet that contributes to the development of cancer, digestive health, combating aging, how to achieve healthy skin, heart disease, potential risks and side effects of mixing medications, and preserving memory. 

Keynote speaker for the event was Kristina M. Johnson, Ph.D., provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs at The Johns Hopkins University, who shared her personal journey from engineering student to one of the nation’s top academic posts.  She is Johns Hopkins University’s 12th provost and the first woman to hold this position at Hopkins.  Also, this year’s luncheon speaker was Donna Jackson Nakazawa, a nationally renowned author, whose recent book focuses on the evidence that modern lifestyles, diet and environmental chemicals have created the ripest possible conditions for rising rates of nearly 100 diseases classified as autoimmune disorders that affect one out of every nine women.

“A Woman’s Journey” is the creation of two women from Baltimore, Md., Harriet Legum and Mollye Block, who together realized the need to provide women with a forum to gain knowledge about their health concerns. Lee Callahan, Susan Keenan, Betsy Meany, Susan Telesco and Norma Tiefel were co-chairs of the Palm Beach event.


Sponsors for the conference were Lydian Bank and Trust, Patrick M. Park and Ritz-Carlton Residences, Inner Harbor, Baltimore.  Tiffany Kenney, anchor for WPBF TV 25, emceed the luncheon. 


Information about the January 2010 event can be obtained by calling Hopkins USA, Palm Beach at 561-659-1128 or on the conference web site:
