Women's health needs are unique and cover a wide spectrum over the course of a woman's life. These video programs were recorded as part of the Women's Health: A Critical Update Across the Lifespan, public Mini-Med School produced in cooperation with the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine.

Three ObGyn faculty present on topics of fibroids, menopause and breast cancer screening. One of our volunteer clinical faculty members presents on breast cancer in Marin County.
