Women in Focus at ECR 2019

Women in Focus will provide a platform for a diverse range of speakers to share their inspiring experiences, offer constructive advice and debate the often-difficult issues surrounding gender and healthcare. Tackling issues such as female leadership, mentoring, the generational progression of women in medicine, and work in challenging environments, this series of sessions will explore and celebrate the crucial role that women play in healthcare on a daily basis, whilst offering advice and insights to all attendees.

With an interactive session style, including live audience polling and extended panel discussions, Women in Focus promises to be one of our most exciting events at the congress this year. The programme will take place on February 28 and March 1 and two special coffee breaks with live music and refreshments will take place after the first session of each day.
