Time for Me! Women's Health Lectures

GBMC has a long history of caring for women. After all, The Hospital for the Women of Maryland, of Baltimore City, was one of the two hospitals that consolidated to form the health system patients know today. Not only does GBMC care for women as patients, but it recognizes the critical role women play in ensuring the health of the ones they love.

With such a strong focus on caring for others and also managing the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can be easy for a woman to lose sight of a very important person – herself! Knowing this, GBMC created a program to give women time to take a break and focus on their own wellbeing. This was the inspiration for Time for Me!, a free women’s health lecture series held each spring and fall. During the month-long series, one lecture is given per week. Each week’s topic is different and presented by GBMC’s own physicians to offer practical information and advice on the prevention, treatment and management of the most common health issues affecting women. 

Join us for one or more of the fall 2014 lectures!
