Every year, Johns Hopkins Medicine hosts a women’s health conference, A Woman’s Journey, to inform and inspire women to make positive and wise decisions about their families’ health. The 2019 event includes half-day programs March 27 in Tampa, March 28 in St. Petersburg and March 29 in Sarasota. The St. Petersburg event is sold out, but tickets remain in Tampa and Sarasota.
Johns Hopkins Medicine physicians will discuss a wide variety of topics, including benefits of exercise, new treatments for brain disorders and stress management. Women come together to raise funds to support Johns Hopkins programs.
“I have been on the committee for A Woman’s Journey for a number of years and served as co-chair for two,” says Jennifer, whose son, Bradley, received expert care at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital after being born two months early. “The committee represents the local community, including mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters. We all have different lives, but we all want the best health and well-being for the people we love.”
The committee’s work to support the mission of the hospital already has benefited families and children and will continue to have a strong impact in the future.
“The efforts of the committee for A Woman’s Journey were instrumental in advocating for and raising funds to fill an important gap in maternal and neonatal care,” says Prabhu Parimi, M.D., M.B.A., C.P.E., division chief of neonatology and director of the Maternal, Fetal & Neonatal Institute. “With their help, we were able to launch our Fetal Care Program to provide comprehensive and cohesive care to mothers and their babies.”
