Event Details

Women and men are not the same—especially when it comes to their health risks, and the sometimes surprisingly different ways the two sexes respond to disease or treatment.


From bone and cardiovascular disorders, to Alzheimer’s, stroke, depression, and sexual and reproductive health problems, women are at greater risk than men of developing specific diseases. And yet, despite growing evidence of the gender differences in disease manifestation, the medical community has been slow to acknowledge that the most effective treatments for women may not be the same as those for men. It’s time to move beyond the “one size fits all” approach and close the gender gap in healthcare.

 

Join us May 10th for a discussion about the concerns and changing needs in women's health.


On May 10th, in partnership with Baptist Health, TEDxJacksonville will host a salon at the Jessie Ball duPont Center titled “Real Talk for Women’s Health.” A panel of specialists will address gender in health and health care, and discuss how women can become their own best health and wellness advocates. 

Discussion leaders:

  1. Mona Shah, MD: Cardiology, Baptist Health Specialists
  2. Jessica Sullivan, DO: Hematology & Oncology, Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Specialists
  3. Robi Tamargo, PsyD: Psychologist Naval Branch Medical Clinic Mayport  
  4. Ellen Williams, Ph.D: Baptist Behavioral Health

Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the dialogue. The program will begin at 6:00 p.m.

The program will be preceded by delicious hors d’oeuvres and a glass of wine per attendee.
