Join us this Friday, October 7th, for the 19th Annual Women’s Health & Cancer Conference.  The theme this year is YOUR HEALTH: Putting Knowledge Into Action and participants are encouraged to use the knowledge gained to inform and empower their health decision-making.  VTAAC will be sharing resources all day in the Exhibit Hall, and many of our members will be speaking throughout the conference sessions.  See the list below for collaborator topics.  The conference offers those interested in women’s health the chance to engage leaders in the field of cancer, as well as provides physicians, nurses, physical therapists, radiology technologists, and social workers the opportunity to earn educational credits.
