2.12.20 OWIMS Professional Development Course: "Ms. Diagnosed"

Providence, RI US
February 12, 2020

The Offices of Women in Medicine and Science and Continuing Medical Education cordially invite you to join us for a presentation of our 2019-2020 Professional Development Series.

Ms. Diagnosed is an intimate and personal film about the most urgent public health issue we face, which asks at is core – do we value women? And perhaps more importantly how much do women value themselves? MS. DIAGNOSED takes the METOO movement into the medical world, uncovering the nearly lethal misdiagnosis of three women due to a faulty system of science created by men, for men. The film examines how this system came to be, and tries to uncover why it perpetuates. Tracing a political history that attempted to institute changes over twenty years ago, and interweaving the words of doctors and scientists, the film becomes a call to action to empower and engage all of us to take control of this wayward medical system and advocate for ourselves. *TreatMeLikeAWoman will be the new rallying call as women and men come to learn just how dangerous it is to be female in the world of medicine…
