CoDiet celebrates International Women’s Day at the Vagina Museum

On March 6th, the CoDiet project hosted an engaging panel discussion, Appetite for Change: Stories of Women in Health, Research, and Innovation, as a way to celebrate International Women’s Day.

The evening was held at the Vagina Museum, the world’s first bricks and mortar museum dedicated to the female reproductive system but welcomes hosting events that align with their aims of supporting women and raising awareness on sex and health.

The panel brought together women at the forefront of health, research, and innovation to share their experiences, delve into the challenges encountered in their respective fields, and discuss the work they’re undertaking to inspire change.

The panellists included; CoDiet researcher Dr Isabel GarciaPerez (Lecturer in Precision & Systems Medicine at Imperial College London, Co-founder and CEO of Melico Sciences), Dr Natasha Singh (Consultant Obstetrician, Clinical Director for Obstetrics and Lead for Clinical Research at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital), Dina Daley (Nutritional Therapist and Health Coach) and Diana Canghizer (Human-centred Design Engineer, Founder of vera AI, UN Women UK Delegate on the Status of Women CSW68).

The event was open to the public and was aimed at anyone interested in learning more about women’s health and research. Over 40 people were in attendance on the evening, which was an ideal number to allow for an intimate and engaged conversation to take place.

The panel was hosted by Founder and Director of the Vagina Museum, Florence Schechter, who not only facilitated the conversation but also contributed her own insights as a woman with experience in science communications and entrepreneurship.

The panellists spoke through some resources attendees would be able to access after the event. You can take a look through these recommended resources yourself:
