Men & Women’s Health Awareness Morning

Clayton Hotel
Thursday, 09 February 2023
9:15 am – 1:00 pm (UK time)

The Insurance Institute of Northern Ireland (IINI) & The Personal Finance Society (PFS) will be hosting a Men & Women’s Health Awareness Morning on Thursday 9th February 2023 at the Clayton Hotel, Ormeau Avenue, Belfast.

Leslie Gillanders, current President of the Insurance Institute of Northern Ireland, theme for the year is 'Value to all our members in everything we do' and he feels this is a very fitting event that will add value outside of the normal CPD events that focus on Education and Soft Skills for both our professions.

The event will consist of four sessions: two specifically for Men and two for Women. Doctors/Consultants will present topics relevant to Men and Women such as Menopause & Breast Cancer (Women) and Prostate Cancer & Colon Cancer (Men), plus a joint session delivered by a speaker on Mental Health and Resilience.

The Insurance Institute Charities will be present to provide information on the help that is available to our members and their families.

Blood pressure clinic throughout the morning, where members can get their blood pressure checked by the Chest Heart & Stroke Association.
