The Effectiveness of Natural Products on Women's Health

Join a stellar panel of health and nutrition experts for a one-day conference focused on the current evidence regarding the health benefits of preventing women’s health conditions through the use of botanical dietary supplements. This is a critical component for answering the current healthcare crisis in the United States that has been mostly ignored by the insurance industry, medical practitioners, healthcare benefit managers, federal and state agencies, and legislators. You’ll hear information and evidence on how the use of botanical dietary supplements can provide a very large and measurable benefit for women’s health issues.


  • Examine the safety and efficacy of dietary supplements and botanicals in women's healthcare;
  • Discuss the cost effectiveness of dietary supplements and natural products; and
  • Cite the scientific basis for the use of dietary supplements and natural products in women's healthcare.
