Share Your Work at Interdisciplinary Conference on Women’s Healthcare
14 June, 2017 on Rutgers RWJ Medical School Campus in Piscataway, NJ
Opening Panel Discussion to be Led by Dr. Gloria Bachmann,
Director of the Rutgers’ Women’s Health Institute
The Women’s Healthcare Innovation and Leadership Showcase (WHILS) is a half-day interdisciplinary conference for women’s healthcare stakeholders – healthcare providers, researchers, patient advocates, policy makers, industry experts, med-tech specialists, payors and more.
“Today’s technologies are enabling groundbreaking opportunities in research, treatment decision-making, and patient engagement. At the same time, the new frontiers and entrenched challenges that we now face are more complex than ever,” said Gloria Bachmann, MD, Interim Chair of OB/GYN and Associate Dean for Women's Health, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School; and Chief of the OB/GYN Service at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
“To harness the full potential of new tools to meet our communal goals, women’s healthcare leaders need to be networked,” Dr. Bachmann continued. “We need to be continually supporting each other through intelligence sharing, referrals, and collaboration.”
WHILS 2017 will address an array of subjects, including the female lifecycle; harnessing women’s voices; big data, artificial intelligence and wearables; high-impact and chronic diseases; wellness vs. disease care; and impactful collaborations.
