UCSF to report on women's health


In recognition of the UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health’s tenth anniversary, a two-day course, “Controversies in Women’s Health” will provide a practical update on a comprehensive range of common but controversial issues in women’s health.

Emphasis will be placed on new developments in preventive care for women, (e.g., breast and cervical cancer prevention and screening; cardiovascular disease); issues in reproductive health (e.g., contraception, urinary incontinence, endometriosis); and clinical strategies in the diagnosis and treatment of common gynecologic and medical disorders of women (e.g., osteoporosis, mental health; obesity, HIV/AIDS).
