About the event
This event was planned to be held at the beginning of 2020 when the topic of ‘women in medicine’ wasn’t as popular as it is now. With the coronavirus pandemic raging through the world, we have become aware of the important role women play on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response.
It’s not a secret that medicine has historically been a boys’ club. Ask a child to draw ‘a doctor’ and ‘a nurse’ and chances are high that the nurse will be drawn as female and the doctor will be drawn as male... Times are changing and more and more women enter the medical field, breaking the gender role stereotypes and paving the way for the next generations. At the upcoming Lean In & Hirslanden Clinic event we will gain in-depth insights into their worlds and gain a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges the sector offers. We will also hear about the hospital’s experience with the virus, the care standards in Switzerland and the preparations the sector takes to ensure we are ready for whatever the pandemic has in store for us. Join us on April 21st over Zoom!
Hand in hand with the increase of women in medical professions goes the raise of ‘gender medicine’, which starts from the vintage point that diseases can manifest differently in men and women and thus diagnosis, therapy and medication have to be gender-specific. Yet, many medical trials have so far been conducted exclusively with male subjects. What does that mean for women’s health? Is the coronavirus affecting men and women differently? Learn more at our next event.
Last but not least, thanks to the nutritional professionals at Klinik Hirslanden, we will get a crash course on how to eat smarter to stay healthy.
