Women’s Health
Focus of Lobby Day 2001

     Lobby Day on Thursday January 25, will emphasize women’s health issues and legislation related to women’s health. Working with the office of the Insurance Commissioner, Kathleen Sebelius, we will learn about the bill carried over in the legislature allowing women to name their OB/GYN as their primary care physician and what we can do to get this passed.

     Other issues covered in the program will be drawn from: the latest in medical and scientific research related to breast and cervical cancer, privacy of health data, update on contraceptives, information about what to look for in health insurance, discussion of national health-related issues important to women, rules regarding insurance licensing, what to expect from the 2001 KS legislature, and strokes (what you and your family need to know and do within 7-20 minutes).
      You are promised a day worth your time.
     Additional information will be posted on this web site as it develops. Check it for confirmed speakers and parking directions. http://kswomen.com
