Dorset is holding its first Women’s Health Symposium on 9th March 2023 at the Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts.
Hosted by Dorset Women and GO Girls under the WAND umbrella, this promises to be of interest to all women of all ages.
In September 2022 the UK Government launched the first ever Women’s Health Strategy for England. This makes now an important and exciting time for women’s voices to be heard and to better understand the impact of health on women now and in the future.
The event will have a packed agenda with a broad range of expert speakers from consultant gynaecologists, specialist nurse practitioners, and other key stakeholders from across Dorset, responsible for women’s healthcare. The programme addresses a range of key topics, including gender bias, menstrual health, fertility & pregnancy, cancers, sexual health and menopause.
The event will be launched by comedian and GO Girls patron, Helen Lederer, with an online guest appearance from Scottish comedian, Janey Godley, who herself is currently undergoing ovarian cancer treatment.
