Then YOU should attend the women’s health symposium.
As health-care practitioners, we need safe spaces to talk about all the issues that face women today so that we create the best solutions for our patients. The Women’s Health Symposium seeks to foster a culture of inter-professional collaboration so that we can improve and promote the health of women in our society.
The Symposium draws its inspiration from the unconference movement, which is all about attendee participation. There are times when we’ll use the traditional lecture format, but you’ll also have the opportunity to break out into smaller groups and ask your burning questions.
Our speakers have been encouraged to focus on the take-home messages, so you’ll leave equipped with key ideas that you can apply in clinic straight away. Speakers and attendees will be encouraged to mingle at break-out sessions where you’ll get to ask questions and dig deeply into each speaker’s area of focus.
We can change the face of women’s health - one conversation at a time.
