About the Event

This once-a-year opportunity to convene with Penn women colleagues and their allies is a celebrated professional development conference for faculty and trainees in every rank, track, department, and division. This includes faculty, instructors, lecturers, fellows and residents, MDs and PhDs; all are welcome and encouraged to attend. There is never an ideal time to step away from the clinic, lab, or office, but this is a unique chance to gather with a substantial group of Penn women peers and take some time for an excellent career development program with national experts.  The theme of this year's conference is, "Women's Health: Investing in Our Science, Our Community, and Ourselves."  Attendees will have the opportunity to schedule primary care appointments and mammograms during the conference.  Our keynote speakers are Dr. Janine Clayton, MD, FARVO (Director, Office of Research on Women's Health, NIH) and Dr. Pooja Lakshmin, MD (Author, Real Self-Care Founder & CEO, Gemma, Assistant Professor, George Washington School of Medicine).
