Join a hybrid event on Addressing gender-related issues and bias in the prevention and treatment of neurological conditions that will take place on Tuesday, 29 November from 13:00 to 15:00 CET.

The event is hosted by the MEP Interest Group on Brain, Mind and Pain (BMP) – an initiative of the European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA) and Pain Alliance Europe (PAE).

Gender-related issues and bias can have a negative impact on women’s health including needs being overlooked, conditions being under-diagnosed/ misdiagnosed and delays in treatment.

Hosted in the European Parliament by MEP Sirpa Pietikäinen (EPP, FI), high-profile speakers, including healthcare professionals, patient representatives, policymakers and academics, will lead the discussions.

You can register here before 21 November 2022. Please note that due to the limited capacity of the room, participants will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. However, you can register here to access the event’s live-stream instead.
