MCW’s Annual Women in Science Luncheon Series, May 21
Women’s sports medicine researcher Anne Hoch, D.O., will keynote the May 21 kick-off event for The Medical College of Wisconsin’s Women in Science luncheon series. She will share findings from her study of the impact of intensive physical exercise on the cardiovascular health of Milwaukee Ballet Company ballerinas.
Dr. Hoch is nationally regarded for her work in understanding the female athlete triad, a potentially dangerous medical condition affecting girls and women in endurance athletics and competitive sports.
The May 21 event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Women’s Club of Wisconsin, 813 E. Kilbourn Ave., and is sponsored by Invitrogen/Life Technologies.
An associate professor of orthopedic surgery at the Medical College and director of the Froedtert & the Medical College Women’s Sports Medicine Program, Dr. Hoch will address how blood vessel dysfunction —a precursor to heart disease— is connected to the triad, a serious condition that combines eating disorders, bone density loss and the absence of menstruation.
The Medical College’s Women in Science luncheon series offers three programs that give the public an opportunity to meet outstanding female scientists and physicians. Subscribers hear compelling presentations by women researchers, benefit from the networking opportunity and share lunch with female physicians and researchers.
Series subscriptions are available for a suggested minimum donation of $250, which supports an annual award for promising women scientists. Admission, lunch and free parking are included.
