Wheelchair Barbie Goes to the Gynecologist

The reproductive and sexual health of women living with paralysis is often overlooked by society, medical professionals and women themselves. 

This webinar seeks to empower women with perspective and information on their reproductive and sexual health and explores a number of topics including the importance of reproductive and sexual health for women with paralysis, secondary conditions that impact reproductive health, sexuality for women with paralysis, barriers to quality health care and their consequences, and strategies for locating accessible health care services. 

Presenter Cody Unser, MPH, will also share her own experiences with the health care system as a woman living with paralysis. 

This event is FREE to attend.
