The University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is pleased to present Healthy Women Community Talks. This free community education series is dedicated to helping all women stay healthy throughout their lives. Healthy Women Community Talks provide an opportunity for the public to hear from clinicians, scientists, and other women’s health experts about the latest research, trends, and treatment options. Questions and discussion are highly encouraged. Talks are held in various accessible, public locations in the Madison area. Most can be attended in-person or via webinar.
High blood pressure is common during pregnancy and following birth: up to 20% of new moms in Wisconsin have high blood pressure. People also experience other serious, less common complications of pregnancy like preeclampsia.
Join experts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology for a free community talk on Thursday, September 1 to learn about the signs and symptoms of high blood pressure during pregnancy and after birth, the latest research on high blood pressure treatment during pregnancy, and need-to-know information on having the healthiest pregnancy possible. Bring your questions about blood pressure and pregnancy for a Q&A with Dr. Kara Hoppe after the presentation!
Dr. Hoppe is a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist in the University of Wisconsin Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She created the Meriter Hospital Staying Healthy After Childbirth program, an innovative program that helps new moms with high blood pressure safely monitor and treat their high blood pressure from the comfort of their home.
