Thank You for Attending the
2014 Orange County Women's Health Policy Summit

The Orange County Women's Health Project presented the 2014 Orange County Women's Health Policy Summit on Friday October 17, 2014 at the Delhi Center in Santa Ana, CA.  Immediately following the Summit, UC Irvine presented the Community Launch for its Interdisciplinary Center on Family Violence.  

The Policy Summit featured presentations of the OCWHP's 2014 Policy Briefs and policy recommendations as prepared by the three Task Forces - Breast & Cervical Cancer, Health & Domestic Violence, and Teen Reproductive Health.  An advocacy training for nonprofits followed, to equip attendees to work with the Task Forces to 
develop action plans that will mobilize and equip stakeholders to implement and advance these policy recommendations. Click here to read the Policy Briefs, Policy Recommendations, and view presentations from the Summit.
