WomenA€AsAhs health care symposium offers new perspectives on trends and controversies

Wellness, adolescent sexual health, diabetes in pregnancy, prematurity prevention — these topics and more are all on deck starting Thursday, Nov. 15, at the three-day 24th annual Pelham P. Staples, Jr., MD, Educational Symposium, located at the Sheraton Arlington Hotel (near the ballpark).

"We’re delighted to have world-renowned experts addressing a host of topics about women’s health," says UNT Health Science Center Ob/Gyn Chairman Ralph Anderson, MD, who serves as the symposium’s Course Director. "Participants will learn how to identify at least 10 current trends in women’s health care and at least three strategies to prepare for the impact of health care reform. And that’s just the start."

Dr. Anderson will speak about "The Impact of the Affordable Health Care Act on the Practice of Medicine" Friday, Nov. 16.

The event is sponsored by UNTHSC and JPS Health Network.
