Hi everyone! My name is Tori, I’m the founder of Medical Herstory, an international youth-led non-profit advancing womxn’s health through storytelling, undoing stigma, patient advocacy, and medical education.
The project was born out of my own struggle with chronic yeast infections and hearing from countless other people who had their conditions dismissed and trivialized but due to shame and stigma were afraid to speak up.
I’d love to collaborate with any other patient leaders! We run an online publication on womxn’s health, run events for hundreds of participants, and lead workshops on patient advocacy and storytelling. Our team is made up of over 40 young people across 5 countries and 14 universities and we would love to have you on our team, sharing your story, or support us!
We are currently recruiting volunteers and you can find out more about us on our social media (@medicalherstory) and website medicalherstory.com!
