Jewish Women’s Health Symposium

Leah Marinelli, MS, CNM, RN, NP and Yutta Engel, CM, LM, two local midwives, are thrilled to announce that they will be hosting the first Jewish Women’s Health Symposium, on July 8th, 2018 at the Atrium Ballroom in Monsey, New York. The symposium will be a comprehensive, educational, day-long affair, encompassing the cycle of a woman’s health from adolescence to menopause, and the years beyond.

As providers of maternity services, health care, and education, they have recognized the need for a widespread campaign to extend health education to Jewish women, addressing a woman’s needs during her entire life, as they believe that when a woman is healthy, a family is happy and the community thrives. They hope this event will contribute to their goal of providing Jewish women with education about their bodies and health.

The Symposium will begin at 9:30 am with a sign-in and light breakfast. The entrance fee includes a healthy lunch, an afternoon spread, and refreshments throughout the day, all of which will be strictly kosher. The event will feature a wide range of vendor booths providing education, information, health screenings, and some giveaways, as well as talks from respected professionals who are experts in the fields of endocrinology, nutrition, emotional health, physical therapy, osteopathy, radiology, health screening and maternity care. Speakers will include local midwives, medical doctors, nutritionists, and licensed therapists who will be available to answer questions.

We welcome women of all ages and levels of observance to this first Jewish Women’s Health Symposium, which is sure to benefit body, mind and soul. For questions or more information, please contact:
