About the event
Have you been made to feel like your health isn't a priority? Has your pain gone unnoticed and underestimated? Do you feel angry and frustrated about our lack of options?
Grab a drink 🍸 and join us for a cozy evening, exploring the enraging history of neglect in the field of women’s health together. We’ll get angry and then end on a high note by looking at positive cases in policy, business & education. Invite a friend, get a drink and let's talk CHANGE together! 🥂
We’ll be sharing what you can do NOW to get the health you deserve and we'll dive into the journey our panellists have taken from frustration to action.
If that doesn’t sound great already, you’ll get a chance to meet some amazing people, share and hear experiences and ask Asta, Martina and Paulina your questions, with a live Q&A with Comma! Ready to start your Monday with a dose of motivation?
