COHI's First Annual Women's Health Summit- Bridges: Women's Health Care as an Agent of Change - was held at Boston University on June 4, 2010. Several guest lecturers, including two BU professors, presented new and engaging information to summit participants. During the lunchtime poster session, BU students and various women's health organizations presented posters highlighting their efforts to improve women's health here and abroad. Overall, the event was a huge success, and we wanted to thank all of the sponsors, raffle donors, guest lecturers, and attendees. The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive, and we hope to make this an annual event. As we continue to focus on improving the health and well-being of women in crisis around the world, we thank you again for your continued support of COHI – none of this would be possible without you.
