We will be announcing a series of events marking PCOS Awareness Month this September. Continue to check our Events page for more details over the next couple of weeks. The first two events announced are SIMBA PCOS and PCOS: Emotions, Experiences & Expectations.
PCOS: Emotions, Experiences & Expectation (Saturday 25th September at 2.30 pm BST)
Join DAISy-PCOS and PCOS Club India for a collaborative event marking Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Awareness Month. Free. Online. Worldwide. All Welcome!
This 90 minute webinar will briefly introduce some of the latest PCOS research projects underway at the Institute of Metabolism & Systems Research, University of Birmingham . Including the national DAISy-PCOS programme lead by Professor Wiebke Arlt and funded through the generous support of the Wellcome Trust. For this year’s event we have decided to focus our main discussion on the topic of PCOS and Emotional Wellbeing – as we receive a lot of interest in this topic in particular. This event is suitable for anyone with an interest in knowing more about PCOS. You may have or suspect you have PCOS yourself or you may know others affected by it.
SIMBA PCOS (Saturday 18th September, 10am – 15:00pm)
SIMBA is delighted to organise the SIMBA PCOS event in September. SIMBA is a real-time simulation based medical training programme using WhatsApp® and Zoom®. This one-of-a-kind educational session is open to both doctors in training and patients with PCOS. SIMBA PCOS is the first virtual session to include participants from the general public. DAISy-PCOS is pleased to be a partner for this event, alongside charities and other learned organizations and societies.
As there are limited spaces and this is an intensive all day event, we need to ensure those who sign up can definitely commit to the training event. For this reason, members of the public should be nominated through one of the charities: Verity, PCOS Club India and PCOS Vitality. Please contact the charities for more information.
Medical professionals should register directly through SIMBA. Please note registration for medical professionals opens on August 26th and these events tend to fill up quickly, so please sign up early to avoid disappointment.
All participants will be guided through 4 clinical cases with the aim of bridging knowledge gaps in the management and diagnosis of PCOS. Find out more on the SIMBA website.
