Mind the Gap: Hormonal Contraceptives and Brain Health—Symposium 4: Hormonal Contraceptives and Cognition

March 23, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:45 am

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 twelve will be the fourth symposium of the conference series. It will include talks from Dr. Adriene Beltz, Dr. Birgit Derntl, and Dr. Marie-France Marin, and will be followed by a twenty minute Q&A session.
