Ninth Annual Omar Pasalodos, M.D., Memorial Lecture on Women’s Health: Advances and Challenges for Delivering Women’s Healthcare

November 18, 2021

Women experience unique health care challenges and are more likely to be diagnosed with certain diseases than are men. Chronic diseases and conditions, such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes, are the leading causes of death for women. Nearly half of adults in the United States have a chronic illness, and half of those have two or more chronic conditions. Thirty-eight percent of women suffer from one or more chronic diseases, compared to 30 percent of men.

Join us as Dr. Dineo Khabele discusses the advances and challenges of delivering women’s healthcare in medical centers. 

Target Audience

Obstetricians, gynecologists, rheumatologists, endocrinologists, gastroenterologists, dermatologists, primary care physicians, nurses, advanced practice registered nurses, physician assistants, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, residents and medical school students, as well as female professionals from the community who are interested in education to advance women’s healthcare. 

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the need for more complex care to appropriately address women’s healthcare needs in underserved, at-risk populations.  
  • Explain the impact of widening healthcare inequities, particularly on women with high-risk pregnancies and cancer.
