TORONTO, Oct. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - On October 22 Women's College Hospital (WCH) will present The POWER Study Forum: A discussion about cutting-edge issues in women's health.

A panel of renowned scientists from Women's College Research Institute will present their findings from the POWER Study, including:
