The Society of Gynecologic Oncology hosted the SGO Allied Health Professionals Meeting in October, and two members of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Gynecologic Oncology presented at the conference!

On October 9, Megan Peterson, NP presented the session “Sexual Health”, focused on sexual health issues that gynecologic oncology patients encounter as a result of treatment and some communication strategies for how to discuss these issues with the patient.

On October 10, Joanne Rash, PA presented on the Special Interest Group panel “Responding to Microaggressions.” The interactive panel discussion covered gender equity and microaggressions in healthcare, defined terms, used case studies and real-life experiences, and provided frameworks for response. The conversation was aimed at helping attendees understand microaggressions and how to respond to them, especially in the workplace.

Incredible work, Megan and Joanne!
