Global Conference 2017

Women make more than 80 percent of family health decisions in America and are responsible for nearly 90 percent of health spending decisions. Panelists will discuss why that is the case and how this affects our health and how we live. There will be a focus on the educational and advocacy tools needed to make the best decisions. Will the next generation of women assume the same responsibilities?

  • What are the biggest barriers to improving our families' health?
  • We all may be called upon as caregivers. What should we do to prepare?
  • What health decision should keep us awake at night and how do we address it?
