The power of women is undeniable. Join policymakers, thought leaders, and fellow women’s health champions during National Women’s Health Week for the inaugural Women's Health Empowerment Summit.

We encourage all who are interested in advancing women's health to attend. Together, we will create action steps to further women's health equity—from prevention and diagnosis, to treatment and cure. Lunch by Wolfgang Puck Catering.

Summit Planning Committee: American Heart Association; Black Women's Health Imperative; Hadassah, The Women’s Zionist Organization of America; HealthyWomen; National Partnership for Women and Families; Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health; WomenAgainstAlzheimer's; and WomenHeart.
