SAN DIEGO, Aug. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Evofem Biosciences, Inc., (NASDAQ: EVFM) ("Evofem"), announced today that its Chief Medical Officer, Kelly Culwell, MD, will present at the #BlogHer18 Creators Summit, presented by SheKnows Media, on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 at 4:05 p.m. EDT in New York City.
Dr. Culwell, aka Dr. Lady Doctor, will address an audience of over 2,000 health and lifestyle bloggers and social media influencers on the topic of unmet needs in women's reproductive healthcare including contraception, prevention of sexually transmitted infections like chlamydia, and bacterial vaginosis.
In addition to this presentation, Dr. Culwell will launch a sexual and reproductive health platform, House Call with Dr. Lady Doctor, at the #BlogHer18 Creators Summit. Through this educational resource, Dr. Culwell hopes to bridge the conversational gap between healthcare providers and patients.
"While women make up 51% of the U.S. population, there is clearly a need for a clinically relevant, approachable and sometimes humorous sexual health resource," Dr. Culwell noted. "Dr. Lady Doctor is intended to provide women with critical knowledge and resources that will enable and empower them to have informed conversations with their healthcare provider."
Dr. Culwell is an OB/GYN who for over 15 years has specialized in women's health and contraceptive research and overseen large contraceptive clinical trials globally. She was previously the Senior Medical Advisor for the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and served as a Medical Officer with the World Health Organization (WHO).
The development of the House Call with Dr. Lady Doctor educational resource was funded by Evofem Biosciences, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercializing innovative products to address unmet needs in women's sexual and reproductive health. Evofem is leveraging its proprietary Multi-purpose Prevention Technology vaginal gel to develop Amphora, which if approved, will be the first non-hormonal, on demand, prescription contraceptive for women. The Company is also focusing on other areas of great unmet need for women, with a Phase 2b study for prevention of urogenital chlamydia underway.
