Women’s Health Conference

Health conference

Our conference provides information on health issue that women should be aware of and locations where they can receive treatment. A variety of health care providers have participated each year, offering free medical testing and educational materials.

Original Staged Reading, Magnificent Healing

We have developed a staged reading that shares the stories of immigrant and refugee women’s experiences with health in the United States, Ecuador, Somalia, and Iran.

The play was developed by Lori Myers and directed by Anne Alsedek with initial funding from the Open Meadows Foundation and Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. Magnificent Healing premiered at our Annual Women’s Health Conference in 2009, and was performed again at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center’s Global Health Night in 2010, with funding provided by the Doctors Kienle Center for Humanistic Medicine, Office of the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs, Global Health Interest Group, and the American Medical Student Association. The play was performed in 2012 and 2013 at Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. We will be performing every year upon request. This year we are performing at Penn State’s Harrisburg Campus.
