Club Activities for the Spring & Fall 2016

Women's Health Week (March 7th - March 11th)
I cannot think of a better way to celebrate international Women's day (March 8th) 
by having an entire week dedicated to women's health and to the specialty of
 Obstetrics and Gynecology! During that week,
 we will have amazing guest speakers from different background and subspecialties that will
 educate students about the fields of ob/gyn.
