Women’s health was deeply affected by COVID-19, on many levels. Clinics were actively encouraged to put off regular screening and treatments, hospitals sought to distant pregnant women from other patients due to the added risk of the disease, and women bore the burden disproportionally of stay-at-home orders. According to the UN Population Fund, the effect on women’s and girls’ sexual health is nearly unprecedented.
In this webinar, CoVelocity has invited three innovative leaders who are dedicated to improving women’s health, and have been wrestling with the effects of the pandemic. We have asked each of these innovative leaders to apply their unique lens — as technologists, public health professionals, and clinicians — to share with us their view of how COVID-19 has impacted women’s health and what we need to do to get back on track towards more equitable access to healthcare.
Please join us to learn from Dr. Miriam Cremer, Vibhav Joshi, and Dr. Saba Alzabin as they explore the impact of the pandemic on Women’s Health, and help us explore ways to address the myriad challenges facing women and women’s health professionals who seek to build a healthier, more equitable world.
