“Looking after yourself during the Holidays: Self-care and endometriosis” was a panel event which took place on 3rd December 2020. It was chaired by Lynn Enright, an Irish journalist who writes for The Irish Times, the Guardian, Vogue, Grazia and The Gloss. Her first book, Vagina: A Re-Education, was published in 2019. It won the Women’s Health Book Of The Year at the Hearst Big Book Awards, 2019.
The purpose of this event was to discuss how we can all take care of ourselves during this stressful time of year, which has been made even more so due to the pandemic and its accompanying isolation and anxiety.
The event included a Q&A session at the end.
