Women’s Health Initiative
In 1995, MCVI founded the first women's health conference in the region - the Women's Health Initiative (WHI). The Pulse3 Foundation (formerly MCVI Foundation) continues the tradition of providing community health education specifically for women through the one-day conference filled with humor and fellowship.
Designed by women, for women, WHI encourages women to take time to care for themselves and to hear the messages our bodies send to us.
Our 21st Annual Women's Health Initiative conference will be held on Friday, May 13, 2016 at Horizons Conference Center from 7:30 am to 3:15 pm.
