LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 19, 2003) -- The University of Kentucky Office of the Provost and the UK Women’s Health Center, in conjunction with other agencies, will sponsor the Sixth Annual Conference on Women’s Health in Kentucky. The conference will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 22, and from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 23, at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in Lexington.

“This is an interdisciplinary conference designed to appeal to researchers, academicians, clinicians and policy makers,” said Julie Sebastian, assistant dean for Advanced Practice Nursing and co-director of the Doctorate of Nursing Practice program, UK College of Nursing.

The conference is an opportunity for health care providers, social service providers, health care administrators, health professions faculty, and government and community leaders to identify current health care perspectives, to promote women’s health, and to analyze new health care information.

The conference includes first-rate state and federal policy sessions, with representatives from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and other agencies. Participants will be able to attend sessions on important women’s health issues such as diabetes, domestic violence, obesity, cardiovascular health, and HIV prevention.

“Women’s health is broad and includes preventive, primary, and a full range of chronic health issues. Women’s health includes, but is not limited to, reproductive issues,” Sebastian said.

The fee for the conference is $50 and includes lectures, educational materials, breakfast, lunch, and a certificate of attendance. To register or for more information, call (800) 284-6407.
