This is an opportunity to engage with a panel of speakers — anchored by Michigan Medicine leadership — who bring research, experience and recommendations on today’s topics relevant to improving the health of people here and around the globe.

In this webinar, our experts will answer questions about women’s health needs when they are 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, and beyond. Learn what you’ve always wanted to know about women’s health — but were afraid to ask!
