Women’s Health Symposium in Naples

Each year, the Women’s Health Symposium held in Naples, Florida celebrates advances in women’s health research and clinical care.

What began in 2017 as a gathering of about 75 attendees has grown to more than 300 people who visit the Ritz-Carlton to hear about women’s health research from Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) scientists and physicians.

“The scientists are so down-to-earth,” says Jennifer Bingham, a longtime Magee supporter and Women’s Health Symposium attendee. “They don’t act snooty ... they’re really friendly.”

This yearly event would not be possible without the ongoing support from attendees like Jennifer and the Gulf Shore community.

Unfortunately, due to the damaging effects of Hurricane Ian on The Ritz-Carlton, MWRI decided to cancel the 2023 Women’s Health Symposium. As the region recovers, MWRI connected with local organizations such as the Collier Community Foundation to provide support for those affected by the disaster.

Though the 2023 event has been postponed, the mission to further women’s health alongside partners in Florida continues. MWRI will be back in 2024 — bigger and better than ever. Join us on February 16, 2024, at The Ritz-Carlton as we showcase world-renowned scientists, share women’s health advances, and spend time with this special community again.
