Join us as we “go there” on aspects of women’s health that are too often whispered or ignored. Explore hormones, microbiomes and physiological changes from early womanhood to fertility to menopause to postmenopause. Have a better understanding of how your body evolves as you age and how that impacts emotions, stress and life experience both today and in the future.
Then stick around to socialize with the group, celebrate womanhood and try the Toto Washlet experience!
Meet our event partner, Juno Bio
Juno Bio is a startup working to close the gender health gap. Women’s health research has been sidelined for far too long and vaginal health is badly in need of a good scientific sorting out. In particular, vaginal health conditions associated with vaginal microbes - aka the vaginal microbiome - such as bacterial vaginosis and infertility, are massively under-researched. We’re conducting The Juno Study to decode the vaginal microbiome and power up discovery of the right solutions for every woman. This event will give attendees the opportunity to participate in The Juno Study. Learn more about it here: https://www.juno.bio/the-juno-study
10 attendees will receive a copy of Leslie Schrock’s book “Bumpin': The Modern Guide to Pregnancy: Navigating the Wild, Weird, and Wonderful Journey From Conception Through Birth and Beyond”
