Women involved in the DAISy-PCOS Leadership Programme will take part in not one, but two events marking International Women’s Day 2021! The second of these events is:
PCOS at the Intersections.
It will explore questions such as: Does race impact the way we experience PCOS? Do Women of Colour feel represented within the healthcare or advocacy space?
Join us on Thursday 11th March 2021 (6-7.30pm GMT) | PCOS at the Intersections| Register online here.
Our understanding of PCOS is very limited, whether that be medically, or in terms of lived experience. In collaboration with Cysters and The DAISy PCOS Leadership Programme, we will be discussing the impact that race has on our experiences of PCOS, and what the healthcare industry can do to rectify inequalities across the intersections. Join us for PCOS storytelling, panel-led discussions, and Q+A.
The panel consists of 6 women of colour, all within their respective fields in relation to the condition. Our session will be moderated by Neelam Heera, the Founder of Cysters.
DAISy-PCOS is a research programme led by IMSR Director, Professor Wiebke Arlt.
