The McGovern series webinars are sponsored by The Women's Fund for Health Education and Research and are always offered to the community free of charge. 

The Women’s Fund is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides health education classes for adolescent girls and free publications and seminars to the Houston community. It is the leading resource for many Houston non-profits and health clinics regarding health education materials. Through its programs, The Women’s Fund teaches adolescent girls the ability to problem solve, set goals, negotiate and communicate to achieve their desired health outcomes and encourages them to become healthy and resilient women.
The JLR Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that was created to honor Judith Liebenthal Robinson, Ph.D. (Judy), a NASA Scientist, who despite habitual exercise, a consistently healthy diet, and regular medical examinations, was diagnosed with advanced stage ovarian cancer and died within a year. While battling ovarian cancer, it was Judy's mission to raise awareness about the vague symptoms and ineffective screening procedures associated with ovarian cancer. For more information visit


McGovern Seminars and Webinars

About the John P. McGovern Seminar:

John P. McGovern, MD, was President of the Board of the John P. McGovern Foundation and founder of the McGovern Allergy Clinic, the world's largest private allergy clinic. Dr. McGovern was the author or co-author of more than 250 publications, including 20 books, in the medical sciences and humanities.

He holds the first Fellow Distinguished Award of the American College of Allergy and Immunology and honorary degrees conferred by 24 colleges and universities.

In 1991, Dr. McGovern generously endowed the annual John P. McGovern Seminar for The Women's Fund, which features topics on specialized information such as allergies, chemical dependency, depression, and over-the-counter medicines.

Our 19th Annual John P. McGovern Seminar, "Sleep of a Lifetime: A lifespan perspective on sleep needs and concerns" with Sleep Medicine and Pulmonary Specialists Colleen Lance, MD, Cindy Kam-Tai Jon, MD MPH and Liliana Diaz, MD from Memorial Hermann was a great success!
