DIRECTOR’S SPOTLIGHT – Nancy Milliken
We encourage all women and girls to take time to improve their health during National Womenís Health Week (May 10–16). Schedule your next check up with your primary care provider and complete recommended preventative screenings. Make a new commitment to the building blocks of improved health and wellbeing: eat the right food, engage in regular physical activity, get adequate sleep, and manage stress.
On May 13 from 11AM–2PM, come celebrate your health with the UCSF National Center of Excellence in Womenís Health at our first monthly Womenís Health Wednesday. To learn more about the event, including the women-owned food trucks, fun fitness activities, and useful health facts.

ADVANCING WOMEN’S HEALTHCARE
Imagine a future in which every doctor who cares for you understands your unique female biology and values your preferences.
Imagine a future in which health care providers work in teams and share information with each other -- and you -- via the internet.
Imagine a brand new state of the art hospital in San Francisco devoted entirely to providing women a lifetime of reproductive health, where a woman can have a baby in a birthing center, receive the latest in breast cancer care, uterine fibroid treatment or incontinence all in a woman-centered environment.
That future is closer than you think thanks to the vision of lifelong women's healthcare advocate and expert Dr. Nancy Milliken. The Women's Specialty Hospital is part of a new $1.6 billion UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay that broke ground in October 2010.
