Women's Health Conference at UVA's Alumni Hall

June 13, 2008

A women's health conference in Charlottesville was held on Friday at the University of Virginia Alumni Hall.

It was an opportunity for educators and health care workers to learn what sorts of risky behaviors young women are engaging in, and find ways to treat the problems.

Miriam Bender, CEO of Women's Health Virginia said, "If we're going to deal effectively with young women's health issues we have to learn how older women can communicate with younger women, and how older women can communicate with younger women, and frankly how peers can help one another."

The Women's Health Conference was organized by Women's Health Virginia.
