Focus on Females

Women's Healthcare Symposium

Empowering women
with the latest
medical knowledge

Focus on Females Women’s Healthcare Symposium was born out of a deficiency in our health care system whereby there is continued erosion in face to face time with providers as there are increasing demands on the provider side. Patients are frustrated and are turning to alternative sources like the internet to obtain information which may not be accurate.

The Focus on Females Women’s Healthcare Symposium, founded by Dr. Steven L. Maskin, meets this need by organizing credible local specialist physicians to reach out to the community with free seminars on a wide variety of topics on women’s health. The physicians use plain English, not medical jargon, to empower women to make smarter healthcare decisions for themselves, their families and their loved ones, and ultimately with this knowledge reduce demand for healthcare services. The event has been brought to the people of Tampa, Florida for two years by FASTWHCS, LLC as organizer and producer of the events.


The full day symposium offers 16 medical seminars as well as health screenings, fitness classes, chair massage, food and beverage and gifts as well as sponsor and exhibitor booths.

The Foundation will be funded by private foundations, government grants, private donations and special programs. All of the Foundation's efforts are dedicated to identifying and bringing the events to candidate cities.
