It All Starts Here - Women's Health student-led podcast

Welcome to our bi-weekly podcast series, It All Starts Here, hosted & founded by Olivia Moir. Olivia is a master's student here at the UCL EGA Institute for Women's Health, completing a Masters of Research degree in Reproductive Science and Women's Health. 

Olivia started this podcast because one thing has become very clear to her: there is loads of incredible research and work that goes on around the world, with invaluable applications for our health, but the communication of this is nowhere near as effective as it should be. This podcast aims to close this gap, helping individuals and communities learn about topics in reproductive science and women's health with evidence-based information and important discussions.
