About the Sima Spector Health Conference:
This annual conference originated from Hadassah Women's Zionist Organization of America, nationally providing free quality health education and information to women of all ages and all ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Sima Spector organized and led the Hadassah "Healthy Women, Healthy Lives" Women's Health Conference in the Sacramento area from 1994 until 2006, when she was tragically killed by a drunk driver. During the past decade, the conference was renamed to honor her memory and her dedication to health education.
