Please join us for a special program to learn about UVA’s commitment to women’s lifelong health and well-being and the work of our Midlife Health Center, one of the only multidisciplinary centers in the country to specialize in caring for women over 40. From helping women navigate perimenopause, menopause, midlife sexuality, and gynecologic wellness, to addressing heart health, osteoporosis, and cancer prevention and treatment—UVA’s world-class physicians, nurses, and researchers are leading the field of women’s midlife health and offering a dedicated, holistic approach to women’s physical and emotional needs during this key stage of life.

Our panel discussion will feature Dr. JoAnn Pinkerton (Col ’76, Res ’85), a nationally recognized expert in women’s midlife health and division director of UVA’s Midlife Health Center, and Dr. Paola Gehrig (Res ’97), chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and renowned specialist in gynecologic oncology. Renee Grisham will moderate the discussion, and an audience Q&A will follow.

Wendy Horton, CEO of UVA Health Medical Center, will offer brief opening remarks and share how UVA Health is championing women’s health at all stages of life.
