Former U.S. Surgeon General Antonia Novello to Discuss Future of Women’s Health at TCC Trinity River

Approximately 200 students are expected to hear Dr. Antonia Novello, the first woman and first Hispanic woman to ever hold the position of U.S. Surgeon General of U.S. Public Health Service, speak about the state of women’s health.  Themed “Advice for the Contemporary Woman: A Conversation on Women’s Health in the 21st Century,” this one-day event is part of TCC’s celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Novello was sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor as the 14th Surgeon General of U.S. Public Health Service (1990-1993). After her service as Surgeon General, Novello served as the State Health Commissioner for New York State (1999-2006) and Executive Director of Public Health Policy at the Florida Hospital-Orlando. She is also a former Vice Admiral in the Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.

This event is co-sponsored by TCC’s Intercultural Network and the TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine.
