UW Women’s Health & Health Equity Research Lecture and Symposium
Kelly Klingensmith, MPH student, presented a poster demonstrating how Share the Health is working to improve women’s health equity in Wisconsin. Kelly was recognized for her hard work with the Outstanding Poster Award. Unfortunately, Kelly was back in class at the time the award was presented.
Kelly and Kristin Brown, MD student and participant in the Pathway of Distinction program, worked with community organizations and identified a need for patients and providers to have a better understanding of the community resources for women’s health care and how to access them. They then worked with Dr. Landry and Dr. O’Rourke to develop Patient’s and Provider’s Guide to Accessing Women’s Health Care. Congratulations to all on a job well done!

Wisconsin State Journal front page article:
“New free clinic focuses on gynecological care”
January 21, 2014
When Dr. Katherine O’Rourke started her residency at UW Hospital, one of her first patients was an uninsured woman in her early 50s. The woman, who had advanced cervical cancer, died within weeks.
“Cervical cancer is almost 100 percent preventable,” O’Rourke said. “If she had access to care, she would not have been in that position.”
O’Rourke asked a mentor, Dr. Mary Landry, where uninsured women in the Madison area go for gynecological care.
“I was embarrassed to say there really is no place,” said Landry, an obstetrician-gynecologist at Meriter Hospital and UW-Madison’s University Health Services.
So Landry and O’Rourke created Share the Health, a free gynecology clinic that opened last week on Madison’s West Side.
