Women's Health Summit 2021

Tuesday, September 28, 2021
7 AM - 4 PM (PT)
Virtual Conference via Microsoft Teams

The Swedish Women's Health Summit will provide attendees practical information on updated diagnostic, treatment and management techniques for a variety of women's health conditions and matters regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). This evidence-based information will assist healthcare providers in providing high-quality, efficient patient care and increase successful patient outcomes. Attendees will be better equipped to care for patients, gaining insight from experts in the field on topics including genetics in GYN cancer, postpartum depression, breast surgery, reproductive issues, pelvic floor PT, mifepristone use, fetal and placental evaluation, health equity, social justice, and transmasculine fertility and birth. For many commonly encountered women's health conditions and matters regarding DEI, comprehensive diagnosis and holistic treatment are vital to successful outcomes and the patients’ quality of life. 

This conference is intended for family medicine and obstetrics physicians, fellows, residents, nurses, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, certified nurse midwives, doulas and all interested caregivers and educators.

Pre-registration is required to access this course. Registration is FREE for those NOT claiming CME credit. Registrants who wish to claim CME credit for their attendance must pay the appropriate fees as listed.
