Healthy Cities/Healthy Women: South Florida and Urban Women’s Health

November 20, 2009
8:00 am to 1:30 pm
La Gorce Country Club, 5685 Alton Road, Miami Beach, Florida

Although much is known about the health of women, the practice of public health and the health impact of living in urban environments, less is known about the intersection of these three subjects: urban women’s health. We hope you will plan to join us for this cutting edge discussion on promoting healthy urban environments for women, their families and their communities as well as Penn’s pioneering role in this new discipline.

Topics include: raising children in urban areas; improving access to care; issues related to women and aging; designing cities for women’s health issues

Featured Speakers: Dr. Divina Grossman, Dean, Florida International University College of Nursing and Health Sciences; Dr. Joanna Lombard, Professor, University of Miami School of Architecture; Dr. Rosha McCoy, Director of Medical Affairs, Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital; Dr. Afaf Meleis, Dean, University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing; Dr. Martha Pelaez, former Regional Advisor on Aging and Health with the Pan American Health Organization and previously with the Southeast Florida Center on Aging at Florida International University

Registration: $85 per person

Includes breakfast, lunch and parking

Proceeds from this event will benefit Penn Nursing and TCPW initiatives, including scholarships, programs and grants.
