2023 Women in Medicine and Science Grand Rounds featuring Dr. Elizabeth Ofili

This is a past event.

The Heersink School of Medicine Office for Diversity and Inclusion, in partnership with the UAB Department of Medicine, invites you to join them for the Women in Medicine and Science Grand Rounds. This special session will honor International Women's Day—a day celebrating the many achievements of women—with a special guest speaker, Elizabeth Ofili, M.D., M.P.H., FACC.

Ofili, a national and internationally recognized clinician-scientist, is an expert in cardiovascular disparities and women's health. Ofili has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health and industry/foundations since 1994. 

As president of the Association of Black Cardiologists in 2002, she led an initiative to implement the landmark African American Heart Failure Trial (AHEFT), whose findings led to a change in practice guidelines for the treatment of heart failure in African Americans.

This is an excellent opportunity to hear from a leader in the field and celebrate women's contributions to medicine and science, all while earning continuing education units (CEUs). The event will be held on Zoom, so register today to reserve your spot!
