2nd April 2019 | 6.30-8.30pm | Kindred, Bradmore House, Queen Caroline Street, London W6 9BW
Join Dr Anita Mitra, aka the Gynae Geek for an evening of taboo-tackling conversation about gynaecological health.
Following the recent and hugely successful launch of her debut book “Gynae Geek: your no nonsense guide to down there healthcare”, Dr Anita Mitra is teaming up with The Eve Appeal for a fun, no holds barred panel discussion, that promises to be interactive and educational.
Anita will be joined by Dr Christine Ekechi, a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist who specialises in early pregnancy and acute gynaecology care, and Karen Hobbs, who spends her days working as Team Eve’s Cancer Information Officer and her nights performing stand-up comedy about her cervical cancer diagnosis.
The evening’s conversation will be guided by your questions, so come prepared with any and every gynae-related query for the panel to delve into and discuss.
Talking openly and honestly about women’s health is at the heart of what we do at The Eve Appeal, and we’re thrilled that brand new co-working and event space Kindred Community are hosting an evening of empowering and engaging discussion in their beautiful Library.
