Women’s Health Q&A Calls

Women’s Health Q&A Call Sessions

These calls were recorded live with Dr. Claudia Welch for alumni of our Women’s Health & Hormones Parts I & II online courses. If you have taken one but not the other of these courses, some of the questions or answers might not make sense to you but hopefully most of this will be useful.

We intend to offer these sessions a couple times yearly, and post them here. If you are here, you are now, or have been at one time, a registered student of one of these courses, so you will receive emails letting you know when live calls are scheduled, how to join them, and how to submit questions on course content. We hope you find these sessions useful or interesting. Or both. Thank you for being here.
