WGON Sponsorship event with Panelist Dr. Elena M. Kamel

On December 9th, The Women’s Group of Northwestern helped sponsor the IL Chapter ACC Webinar “Pregnancy and Cardiovascular Risk in Women: What Healthcare Professionals Should Know.” Female physicians from Rush and Northwestern were wonderful educators and were motivated to join forces in Illinois to decrease maternal mortality. Dr. Kamel was one of the panelists.

In the spirit of giving....Night Ministry
