Duke Medicine: Two-day event focuses on women's health
Posted April 22, 2013
Duke Medicine will host two days of art, jazz, food and health screenings as part of an effort to focus on women's health.
Stronger Together: Fighting Disparities and the Leading Causes of Death aims to encourage women to harness the power of creative energy and reach all their senses. The events, on May 3 and May 4, feature a variety of speakers and leaders.
They include Sandra Dubose-Gibson, the first bald beauty queen; Nnenna Freelon, a six-time Grammy-nominated jazz artist; Joe and Terry Gradeon of NPR's The People's Pharmacy; and more, along with a variety of wellness screenings performed by Duke providers.
"Women have unique health concerns, and need to work together to demand accurate diagnosis, proper treatment and exceptional care," says Kathy Kastan, director of the Duke Women's Health Initiative. "That is why I encourage you to join me May 3 and 4 for an unprecedented series of events."
