Women's Health Conference

22nd Annual Conference

Friday, April 21st, 2023


The Annual Women’s Health Conference is a one-day CME accredited program through MCW, ACOG and AAFP, providing up-to-date information in all aspects of Women’s Health and medical updates in General OBGYN and subspecialties. While most conferences focus on the needs of our patients, we have taken an active approach to incorporate provider wellness. In recent years, we have featured topics such as provider burnout, self-care, and second victim. Some of our most popular topics have included contraception, sexual dysfunction and menopause.

This activity is intended for practitioners in OB/GYN and in primary care who provide care for women, including: Obstetricians/Gynecologists, Internists, Family Practitioners, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Certified Nurse Midwives, Registered Nurses, Medical Learners

Guest Speaker – Lauren Streicher, MD:

Clinical Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Northwestern Medicine
