Dr. Amy Young and her team are building the Department of Women’s Health at the Dell Medical School with an eye on a woman’s entire lifecycle – not just the moments when she needs health care.
Dr. Young presented her vision for women’s health – in Travis County and beyond – in a presentation this week titled “Healthy Mothers, Healthy Women and a Healthier Community.” The presentation, like Dr. Young’s work, focused on ways to help women get and stay healthy over their whole lives – not just the moments in their lives when they need health care.
She also discussed the disparities in care facing this community and many others across the nation, as well as her work this year creating an integrated delivery model in Travis County for Obstetrics care. And she stressed the school’s unique opportunity to support physician scientists and offer innovative, flexible programs to train future doctors.
