Mind the Gap: Hormonal Contraceptives and Brain Health—Session 4: Trainee Poster Session and Young Investigator Data Blitz

November 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

In this virtual conference series, we will be hosting bi-weekly events including two keynote talks, four symposia, trainee mentor sessions, guest workshops and a roundtable discussion where attendees will co-create create a blueprint for future research on hormonal contraceptives. You are invited to join all of these gatherings, or pick and choose which ones you want to attend.

This virtual conference series will dig into unique aspects of hormonal contraceptives and the examined effects of these hormones on the brain. It will engage researchers, clinicians, community partners, trainees, and policymakers to share research and develop strategies to spotlight the need for consideration of female-specific factors to improve women+’s brain health. The overall objective of this conference is to bring attention to the brain health issues that women+ face and encourage the medical, scientific and commercial communities to address them.

Session four will be a Trainee Poster Session and Young Investigator Data Blitz. This session will include presentations from trainees on the topic “Endogenous and Exogenous Hormones in Women+’s Health”. The Young Investigator Data Blitz section will include talks from Jesse Lacasse, Jennifer Williams, Margot Marinkhof, Laura Gravelsins, and Rachel Gilfarb.
