Women’s Health Awareness Day at NCCU

Durham, NC Apr 7 8:30 am - Apr 7 5:00 pm
The fourth annual Women’s Health Awareness Day will be held Saturday, April 7, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the North Carolina Central University (NCCU) Mary Townes Science Building, 1900 Concord Street, Durham. This day-long women’s health conference will feature free wellness screenings, health education workshops, healthy living presentations, and health resources.
 
On-site registration is available the day of the event, but those who register online by March 15 will be offered a free lunch sponsored by Duke University Hospital.
 
Growing in popularity, this annual women’s wellness conference attracts more than 600 participants from the Triangle and surrounding area. With the help of public health experts, women become educated and empowered to make healthy life-style choices for themselves and their families.
 
The health conference is open to all women. However, it places special emphasis on women of color and those who are underserved, uninsured, or underinsured. The goal is to provide awareness, services, and resources that will improve health equality for women and communities of color.
 
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, Office of Human Research Compliance, Clinical Research Branch is the lead sponsor for the event. The Durham Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Durham Alumnae Delta House, Inc., and the Department of Health Education at North Carolina Central University are co-sponsors.
