Health event marks International Women’s Day
An event to raise awareness of how women can get involved in NHS, public health and social care research was held in East Oxford to celebrate International Women’s Day.
More than 50 attended the Women Celebrating Women event at Asian Cultural Centre, Manzil Way, Oxford on Sunday 8 March.
The event featured a wellbeing workshop, information stalls, snacks and a quiz to encourage women to look after their wellbeing and seek out opportunities to get involved in research.
Participating in health research helps develop new treatments, improve the NHS, public health and social care and save lives.
Healthy people can also take part so results can be compared to those with a medical condition.
Patients are encouraged to ask their doctor or health professional about research opportunities and view trials seeking volunteers at Be Part of Research.
The event was a partnership between the Oxford Asian Cultural Association, M&A Social Enterprise, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and the National Institute for Health Research.
