A/Prof Magdalena Simonis AM Presentation Schedule
Women’s Health Q&A – 7 Sept
On Thursday 7th September, I will present in a Q&A at the University of Melbourne, repeating the previous year’s successful session. These sessions provide a unique opportunity for students to have all their health questions answered by a leader in women’s health. It’s a joy taking questions from the audience; it’s a bit like consulting in my rooms but answering to more people!
These are casual and interactive sessions, covering the important health checks you need and when, as well as common conditions affecting women, girls and gender diverse people, like endometriosis, heavy menstrual bleeding and Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). After the initial presentation, the floor opens up to the audience for more questions.
Women’s Agenda Breakfast – 8 Sept
On Friday morning, our Deputy Treasurer Dr Evelyn Konstantopoulos and I are invited guests at the Women’s Agenda breakfast, with Assistant Minister Ged Kearney, discussing women’s health issues.
Greek Australian Women’s Network – Women’s Health Seminar – 10 Sept
On Sunday, September 10th, I’m be finishing the week with my Greek Australian women’s group, joined by experts sharing their insights in other fields. My focus will be on endometriosis to the Greek Australian Women’s Network in a webinar.
