Whilst International Women’s Day is on March 8th, we will be celebrating it early On Saturday 6th March at 11 am – 12.30 pm GMT. Join the Institute of Metabolism & Systems Research (IMSR) in collaboration with University of Birmingham’s Women’s Network for a community-led panel discussion focused on inequity in women’s healthcare. We will explore what lived experience advocates are doing to raise awareness of the barriers and stigmas that impact on women’s health and wellbeing. You can play your part too, by getting involved in the discussion and contributing your own ideas and questions to this online webinar event.
Using Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) as a case study on which to frame this broader discussion, diverse women involved in the DAISy-PCOS Leadership Programme will lead the event and share their personal experiences to highlight how gender and cultural factors influence medical gaslighting, healthcare access & management and even the progress of healthcare research itself.
