About A Woman’s Journey

More than 20 years ago, two remarkable Baltimoreans approached Johns Hopkins Medicine with an idea that would affect the lives of thousands of women. Both survivors of cancer, Mollye Block and Harriet Legum wanted to empower women to make effective health care decisions for themselves and those they love. Johns Hopkins Medicine accepted their challenge. The result has been a powerful health conference, A Woman's Journey. Since 1995, this one-of-a-kind health education program has annually offered seminars—all taught by Johns Hopkins faculty physicians and scientists.
