Women’s Health Education Series 2019

About the Series

Dignity Health East Valley desires to become a comprehensive center for women’s health, providing compassionate, transitional care for women across each stage of her life. We want to partner with expert physicians to develop high-quality care for women across multiple service lines including obstetrics, pediatrics, adolescent women’s health, breast health, GYN-ONC, pelvic health, women’s heart health and other services. This CME series is designed to address topics that are not only important to women’s health but will help educate community providers on causes, conditions, and treatment affecting adult women today. This series will complement Dignity Health program development around a comprehensive women’s center at MGMC; by offering relevant topics in each area and presented by local experts
