AGES Focus Meeting 2021
AGES FM 2021
The AGES Focus Meeting 2021 was our first conference of the year, an innovative and thought-provoking meeting! For the first time in AGES’ history the Local Organising Committee was compiled fully of AGES Accredited Training Program Graduates from across Australia, who put together the meeting, titled “Next Generation” that was held on the 5th and 6th of March 2021.
Whilst the world was slowly progressing to COVID-19 normal, we were mindful that the challenges faced in 2020 were still present and we were yet to return to our normal method of conferencing. The Focus Meeting 2021 was offered as a Hybrid event, with mini-sites in multiple locations throughout Australia, and offered a virtual component for those who were unable to join us in person.
The AGES Focus Meeting 2021 organising committee developed a program highlighting many of the current issues faced by all, including advances in gynaecological practices, challenges with research and collaboration and confronting cultures issues. We had a spectacular team of international and local speakers, including Natasha Anandaraja and Linda Bradley from the USA, Nick Bourdel from France and Silvia Vannuccini from Italy. In addition, amongst the local speakers, Anand Senthi introduced the concept of EBM 2.0 and Helen O’Connell unpacked all that is the clitoris.
We are excited how this meeting will help the Next Generation to make their mark and carry the torch for the future of Women’s Health.
