What can attendees expect from the session?

- Introduction from Lynne Cadenhead
- A 15 minute informative talk from Dr Tracie Miles on subject matters relating to women’s health, how businesses can support women’s health in the workplace and where to find support and resources if required
- Q&A session, which from experience the audience find very valuable
- Signposting to resources for any further questions or concerns 


This is a unique opportunity to hear from Dr Tracie Miles, an experienced Gynaecology Oncology Specialist Nurse and Genomics Practitioner on the signs and symptoms of gynaecological cancers and how to support women’s health in business.

This webinar could save a life. 

There are five gynaecological cancers – womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal – but awareness levels of these cancers is very low.

Each year in the UK, over 21,000 women are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer. This means an average of 58 people receive this life-changing news each and every day. Sadly, 21 of these women die a day from their gynaecological cancer.

Part of our mission is to ensure that everyone is aware of what to look out for, because recognising gynaecological cancer symptoms can mean an earlier diagnosis and a better outcome.
 
This is an online event. To attend, book below. We will provide a joining link before the event.
