Women’s Health Week at University of Melbourne [Event Recap]

Two AFMW Councillors here amongst the leaders of Australasian Doctors Health Network: Dr Jen Shafer - second from right and Dr Marjorie Cross second from left

A/Prof Magdalena Simonis was invited to speak to an open forum for University of Melbourne students. The forum was recorded and a video recap is available to all via the Melbourne University mediaspace. The session was in Q&A format and topics covered included:

  • Preventative health screening
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Heavy Menstrual Bleeding
  • Contraception- in particular, the benefits of long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs)
  • Mental Health
  • Sexual health
  • Healthy lifestyle – the importance of iron and vitamin D in particular.

It was a real treat speaking to students around such important topics and I look forward to sharing important health information with them in future.
