The unmentionables: Challenging inequalities in women’s health

pharmaphorum podcast episode 123a

As Women’s History Month continues, pharmaphorum web editor Nicole Raleigh welcomed a group of expert individuals onto the podcast to discuss not just the inequalities in women’s health, but female leaders within life sciences, too.

The guests included: Trine Bartholdy, chief innovation executive at the BioInnovation Institute (BII) in Denmark; Karin Lykke-Hartmann, CEO and founder of Notify Therapeutics; Julia Sand Skovsted, co-founder and CCO of Oasicare; and Maj Hedtjärn, Entrepreneur in Residence for the CurE-Me project.

The elephant in the room is that women's health is under-addressed. It has long been seen as a taboo topic, even, and is rarely discussed. But it is imperative to educate communities on women’s health, and to ensure research and advancements can be made. And the Women’s Health Initiative specifically aims to help focus minds to find therapies for this underserved patient group.
