Next month, Johns Hopkins physicians will present research on a range of topics about women’s health.Two doctors join us for a preview.

Deidra Crews describes the disproportionate impact of kidney disease on women of color, the challenge of detecting an illness that often presents no symptoms in early stages, and her research on how diet helps.

Then, the number of people living with Alzheimer’s is forecast to double every twenty years. Constantine Lyketsos, who heads Hopkins’ ‘Memory and Alzheimer’s Treatment Center,’ shares strategies to preserve brain health.

Johns Hopkins' "A Woman's Journey" is November 10th at the Hilton Baltimore. Registration information available here.

Another local event on health: Next weekend, McDaniel College will host its 5th Annual Alzheimer's Symposium, hosted by its Center for the Study of Aging. Event information here.
