Funding For Women's Health Focus Of New Professional Conference Program

MANASQUAN, NJ -- "Funding For Women's Health Programs: How To Secure The Money Needed To Help Your Program Thrive," a new senior management-level teleconference has been scheduled Thursday, August 25, at 1:30 p.m. The program is being presented by www.womenshealthprofessional.com

Overwhelmingly, funding is the chief concern of professionals responsible for the management and administration of their organization's women's health program, according to results of a new survey conducted by www.womenshealthprofessional.com

Finding the financial resources to support your program is imperative. Funding is needed to provide access to care for the women you serve, for program development, ongoing support, to cover the gap between fees and costs, and for new technology.

"Funding, nothing happens without it," one of our survey respondents told us. That's why this special teleconference "Funding For Women's Health Programs: How To Secure The Money You Need To Help Your Program Thrive" has been organized.

The goal of this program is to help you make the case for adequate funding for your program, to make you aware of the potential for funding opportunities that do exist, provide you with ideas to help strengthen your existing funding efforts, and provide you with an overview of how to generate gifts and grant support for your organization.

The issues surrounding funding came out of the survey we have conducted on the issues and challenges professionals in women's health face in managing their programs. This team-training program is being sponsored by www.womenshealthprofessional.com.

"Funding For Women's Health Programs: How To Secure The Money You Need To Help Your Program Thrive" will 'set the stage,' with an overview presentation on the vision of what can be achieved and the practicalities of "thinking funding;" a case history of a successful women's health center and the center's successes in funding and philanthropy, and, finally what needs to be done -- the nuts and bolts of organizing to start a grants funding effort.

Conference Presenters:


* Barbara Hill, President, Michigan Women's Foundation,

* Courtney Bell, Executive Director of the Chicago Women's Health Center, and,

* Brandi Holys Tumbleson, Director of Program Services of the March of Dimes, Nebraska Chapter.
