From Manhattan to Montauk, supporters of the event are raising health awareness for women. As the only network of experts designed to meet the healthcare needs of women, Northwell’s Katz Institute for Women’s Health is the only facility of its kind. This institute includes clinicians, scientists, and researchers.
“Women have been understudied, underdiagnosed and undertreated for too long,” said Stacey E. Rosen, MD, senior vice president of women’s health at the Katz Institute for Women’s Health. “Our experts focus on the unique health needs of women and collaborate to create a new model to improve the health of women. We’ve launched a revolution in women’s health.”
A CBS News senior medical correspondent and associate director of the Lenox Hill Women’s Heart Program, Tara Narula, MD, and Dr. Rosen were among the speakers at the event, which was emceed by Rosanna Scotto on WNYW-Fox 5.
