Live Aid, which took place on July 13, 1985 for a global audience of 1.9
billion people, was a massive, bicontinental pop concert created to raise
money for Ethiopian famine relief. Our efforts will be the same but not
for Ethiopian famine relief. Our focus is for Women’s health awareness.
Women’s health differs from that of men in many unique ways. Women’s
health is an example of population health, where health is defined by
the World Health Organization as “a state of complete physical, mental
and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
Our health awareness concert will bring awareness of but not limited too
are as follows:
Skin*, Ovarian and breast cancer. Teenage girls being able to get breast cancer will be our largest push to promote early detection during your girls’ teens and not the traditional late 30’s or early 40’s mark.
Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that affects more women than men. If a woman have lupus, her risk is higher for other health problems that are common in women, such as heart disease and osteoporosis.
Domestic violence is a serious threat for many women. Knowing the signs of an abusive relationship and how to leave a dangerous situation are the keys we will bring to the concert. Along with counseling and broachers of how to combat such moving forward.

More than 2 in 3 women in the United States are overweight or obesity. Extra weight leads to many diseases that affect women, such as heart disease, diabetes, and many cancers. It can be difficult to talk about her weight with a doctor or nurse. A doctor or nurse you feel comfortable with can be a powerful partner in helping you reach a healthier weight.
Diabetes is a disease in which blood sugar (glucose) levels in your body are too high. Diabetes can cause serious health problems, including heart attack or stroke, blindness, problems during pregnancy, and kidney failure. About 15 million women in the United States have diabetes, or about 1 in every 9 adult women.
Pelvic floor disorders are more common than you think and can occur at any age. At least one in three women will experience a pelvic floor disorder in her lifetime, and one in four women older than 20 suffers from pelvic floor symptoms like urine or stool leakage. If you’re one of them, you know how much these symptoms can disrupt your daily life.One in five women will need to undergo surgery to treat a pelvic floor disorder. Unfortunately, 30 percent of these women face the risk of needing repeat surgery, which is why our urogynecologic surgeons at the University of Chicago Medicine are committed to personalized treatment and cutting-edge research.
We will tackle 24 Women health issues during the event (1 per hour).
*Skin Cancer-Many of your daily makeup products contain harsh chemicals that can disrupt functions of the protective barrier of your skin, making it easier for pathogens to enter your skin. Using makeup regularly can cause various side effects, impacting the health and natural glow of your skin. However, this doesn’t mean that you cannot use makeup at all. We will give awareness of a few healthy makeup habits and choose skin-friendly products that will allow women options so she can continue to wear makeup everyday.
