Womens Health

The group was an idea that came up near the stand of EYFDM in London this past conference 2022, after attending a SIG Family Violence workshop.
My interest in Women's health (and knowing the existence of that group in the Wonca World) made me wonder why not to create one for ourselves, to work for young doctors and patients. A few colleagues agreed with the plan and we set the basis for it to happen.
