UW OBGYN Innovations in Women's Health

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is pleased to present Healthy Women Community Talks. This free community education series is dedicated to helping all women stay healthy throughout their lives. Healthy Women Community Talks provide an opportunity for the public to hear from clinicians, scientists, and other women’s health experts about the latest research, trends, and treatment options. Questions and discussion are highly encouraged. Talks are held in various accessible, public locations in the Madison area. Most can be attended in-person or via webinar.

Our department’s mission is to improve quality of life for women in the state of Wisconsin and beyond by providing compassionate, high quality patient care and by advancing knowledge through research, education, and advocacy. We do so in an environment of collaboration, humility, integrity and respect.
