The UCSF/UCHASTINGS Consortium on Law, Science and Health Policy and the Hastings Women’s Law Journal are pleased to announce an upcoming symposium entitled “Frontiers in Women’s Health: The Role of Hormones in Aging and Disease.” The symposium will take place on Friday, February 25, 2011, at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. Admission is FREE and 7 hours MCLE credit is available to attendees

This unique event will draw together speakers and attendees from the medical, legal and policy communities, and will present opportunities for members of each community to interact with and understand the perspectives of the others. The morning will begin with an overview of the now-familiar topic of hormone therapy in peri-menopausal and menopausal women, with an in-depth discussion of the Women’s Health Initiative hormone trial data and the controversies the data have engendered since the trials were halted. This will be the “jumping-off point” for a wide-ranging and multi-disciplinary set of panels, including discussions about health policy decision making, informed consent, litigation over hormone use, and gendered medicine.
