Each year The Medical Center presents its women's conference, A Day Just for Women. This day-long conference gives women the opportunity to gather and learn about pertinent health issues, be inspired by motivational speakers and enjoy the company of other women. Women walk away from the conference empowered to make changes in their lives, armed with tools to help them.
Throughout the day, participants visit exhibit booths on subjects of interest to women and take advantage of free health screenings and information related to women's health. Individual seating as well as corporate tables are available.
