A Virtual Event on July 28-30, 2021

Overview

PINK X, a three day event, will bring together leading experts to explore the topic of brain injury in women. We will present the current research about how sex and gender differences impact mechanisms of injury, help seeking, screening, diagnosis, care and long term outcomes.

Our roundtable sessions will facilitate discussion and debate about the best way to recognize, talk about, and understand brain injury in women, as well as what the most important policy changes are to prevent women with brain injury becoming silent sufferers with a hidden disability. We will also provide a toolbox of techniques for professionals working with women with brain injuries, and give a platform to the wonderful organizations currently working towards a more optimistic future.

Bringing a voice to women with brain injury is key across research, policy, and practice. Our patient panels will share their brain injury journey and discuss how their experience with the medical community.

We invite questions and engagement about all aspects of brain injury in women, and will provide opportunity to join in our discussions and ask questions of our expert as well as our patient panels.
