Doni Miller, local TV personality and chief executive officer of Toledo’s Neighborhood Health Association, will present a lecture on “Women’s Health — Opportunities and Obligations.”

The free, public talk will take place Thursday, Nov. 13, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in Collier Building Room 1000. The event is sponsored by the Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women.

Miller will address issues that impact women’s health today; these will include how to navigate the health-care system and social and cultural pressures.

“Doni Miller is someone who has made an impact on the community through her work in the Neighborhood Health Association and her informative interviews on TV,” Dr. Shanda Gore, UT associate vice president for equity, diversity and community, said. “We hope for her to share her knowledge of health and how the lack of health care affects at-risk communities.”

Jan Ruma, vice president of the Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio, will join Miller and discuss opportunities for women related to the Affordable Care Act and the expansion of Medicaid.

“We hope that this lecture will help answer questions about the health-care system, the Affordable Care Act specifically, and what women need to take care of themselves in their day-to-day lives,” Gore said.

“I strongly encourage everyone to come, bring questions, and utilize this opportunity to better take care of themselves,” Gore said.
