Committed to women-centered health care
Together with Erasmus MC Rotterdam Miesiyu created the platform Woke Women, a Dutch collective of skilled women working in the areas of science, (social) medicine and midwifery. Woke Women is of vital importance, because there still exists a medical blind spot within the current health care system when it comes to women’s health and wellbeing. Resulting too many late or incorrect diagnoses, higher burden of disease, inadequate treatments, lower quality of life, unnecessary illness and – in the worst case – avoidable (child) mortality. Therefor Woke Women roots strongly for women-centered care. Starting by campaigning on preconceptional lifestyle interventions.
