Women Speak Out for Their Health

Pity the poor doctors. A panel of five health experts met face to face with 1,200 very vocal women Friday in the first "Women And Doctors," a luncheon and briefing on major women's health issues held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The event, sponsored in association with the Revlon/UCLA Women's Cancer Research Program, featured questions on such issues as osteoporosis, breast and ovarian cancer and heart disease. The questions often centered on the inequity in women's health research.

"Today's issues in women's health are frightening, frustrating and infuriating," said program co-chair Lilly Tartikoff. "I hope we can shed some light on these complicated issues."
