Women’s Health Society is a brand new society starting this year. The committee is made up of students from different year groups, and we can’t wait to welcome reps from other healthcare courses.
We started up the society with the aim of improving education about women’s health issues across the university. Of course, we want to provide extra exam-based teaching from specialists in the field, but we also want to be open to all students for discussion and social events.
Our first event is open to all students and will be a great chance to meet the committee and tell us what you want us to do for you this year. We are meeting in The Lounge (3rd floor of the Students’ Union) on Thursday 1st October at 7:30pm to watch a pregnancy-based comedy… to be decided on the night! There’ll be popcorn and refreshments, all for £2!
We’re very keen to introduce interdisciplinary skills sessions led by our allied healthcare professions, for example sessions on labour and delivery taught by final year midwifery students. Our other events include trips to national conferences, help planning obs & gynae electives, opportunities for older years of all healthcare courses to teach, research opportunities and talks about getting into women’s health-related careers. We plan to cover so much more than obstetrics and gynaecology, and would love for students from across both campuses to get involved in raising awareness of the less-talked about women’s health issues, like postnatal depression.
We look forward to meeting you at the Heath and main campus Freshers’ Fayres, or if you’d to contact us, please drop us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
