Health Equity Webinar: Gender & Health
On March 8th of every year we recognize International Women’s Day. This global celebration is an opportunity to celebrate women, but also an opportunity to reflect on the impact of gender for those who are marginalized by it. In the pursuit of health equity, gender is a critical influence that impacts not only individual but also community health. Did you know that across more than 770 different diseases women are diagnosed on average 2.5 later than men? These disparities have adverse impacts on the lives of millions and will require novel approaches and innovative solutions to be addressed. The Royal University Hospital Foundation’s Women Leading Philanthropy Program is one program leading the way in pursuit of health equity. Join us on March 24th to hear from Dr. Mary Kinloch, co-founder of Women Leading Philanthropy.

Dr. Kinloch is a practicing pathologist in gynecologic and molecular pathology for the Saskatchewan Health Authority on Treaty 6 territory. She is the division head of Anatomic Pathology in Saskatoon and a clinical associate professor at the University of Saskatchewan in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine.

Dr. Kinloch's main goal is to provide cancer biomarker equity to the province of Saskatchewan and uses her experience in quality improvement to ensure everyone has access to the most up-to-date information when it comes to their health.

Her work with Women Leading Philanthropy with the Royal University Hospital Foundation as a volunteer chair has raised over $600,000 for female-led projects that have transformed the patient experience at RUH.
