Challenging the Estrogen Myth: Speaking Truth to Power

You are invited to a special talk with UBC professor and endocrinologist Dr Jerilynn Prior. Recipient of UBC's Distinguished Medical Research Lecturer Award, Dr. Prior is internationally renowned as an innovative researcher, pioneer in women's health care and social activist. Drawing from research, her clinical experience as a medical doctor, and her own difficult midlife transition, Dr Prior has challenged many of medical science's beliefs about women's bodies. In this lively discussion Dr Prior shares her insights and experience as a woman scientist, as well as giving women - of any age - the information they need to know about taking care of their own health.

Sponsored by the University Women's Club of Vancouver, the Centre for Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation Research, and the University of British Columbia
