2nd Annual Fearless in Women's Leadership

October 12-13, 2022 | Virtual Event

Fearless in Women's Leadership

Innovation in Women’s health is needed now more than ever! Why? Because women’s health research is underfunded and undervalued. According to Amy Millan women’s health is just 4% of overall R&D funding for healthcare products and services and only 65% of this focuses on infertility. Something as simple as childbearing ages were not included in clinical trials and drugs were ineffective or unsafe for women.

I am making the focus on Women’s Health and Innovation being that this is a hot topic within the industry and a great event to start with from our previous speakers like Wendy Lund, Saundra Pellitier etc. As women are usually 80% of the life science decision markets, it is noticed that women have distinct health needs, and it’s time that healthcare and industry leaders take a more active role in the life science industry to advance women’s public health globally and it is finally being noticed that women’s health such as endometriosis, menopause, and contraception are finally being noticed.
