This Conference aims to:

  clinicians and policy makers working in the area of women and

. Bring critical contributions from theory and research into
  discussions of aetiology, clinical practice and health care

The Conference will provide a unique forum for the exchange of ideas
and the development of new models and approaches to the understanding
and promotion of women's health. It will appeal to psychologists,
sociologists, doctors, nurses, midwives, psychotherapists, health care
workers, policy makers and health advocates.

The key themes of this conference are:

. Developing critical theories and methodologies

. Lifespan perspectives

We welcome submissions which are concerned with the areas of interest
identified by the Report of the EC Commission on the state of women's
health. These include: cardiovascular disease; incontinence; cancer;
eating disorders; HIV/AIDS; family planning; abortion; menopause;
violence against women; and health risk behaviours such as smoking,
diet, exercise and alcohol consumption.

 Conference registration fees have been held as low as possible to
ensure maximal attendance.

Help please! 
The difficulty with interdisciplinary conferences is in ensuring that
information about the conference reaches the majority of potential
participants, in their diverse disciplinary and occupational
enclaves.....  Please help by forwarding the above web address to
anyone you know who is not on this discussion list, and who may be
interested in the conference. Thank you.
