Medical Women’s International Association Northern Region Meeting
May 15th - May 17th, 2020
Women Doctors - A Source of Inspiration and Resources
The meeting will be held on a cruise crossing the Baltic sea. Lectures, workshops and discussions will start on Friday afternoon May 15th as the cruise commences in Helsinki. The program continues on Saturday morning May 16th before we arrive in Stockholm. During the 5 hours stay in Stockholm there will be time for a walk in the old town, for a sightseeing tour or museum visit. On Saturday afternoon the program will continue on the boat and we cruise back to Helsinki where we arrive on Sunday morning, May 17th.
The shipping company is Viking Line which is one of the biggest cruise-liners crossing the Baltic Sea. The cruise includes two dinners and two breakfasts on the boat. This is a unique opportunity to see two of the Nordic Capitals, experience the world’s largest archipelago and at the same time interact with medical colleagues from other countries, take part in lectures, discussions and workshops related to our themes, namely:
- The wellbeing of women doctors, who takes care of the doctor?
- Promoting women’s sexual and reproductive health’
- Women’s health from youth to old age, work and life balance
- Gender medicine
The Finnish Medical Women’s Association was founded in 1947 to achieve better opportunities for international connections and to act as a supporting network.
The Swedish Medical Women’s Association was begun in 1916 as a club for women doctors. In Stockholm we will have the opportunity to visit the intact home of Karolina Widerstrém, the first woman to graduate from the Karolinska Institute and founder of the Swedish Medical Women’s Association.
*please note that in order to participate in the program reservations must be made through the host organization (firstname.lastname@example.org) , not through the cruise line directly.
