Flo Health is excited to announce our involvement in the FIGO 2021 World Congress, held virtually October 21–28, 2021. The Flo-led symposium will focus on real world data and the power it has to move women’s health forward.

Flo Health, the world’s leading female health app, has announced it will be taking part in the FIGO 2021 World Congress.

This year, the Congress will be held virtually October 21–28, 2021.

Flo will lead a conversation about real world data (RWD) and the opportunities it provides for advancing scientific research, improving quality of care, and educating patients. The symposium will be available live on October 27 at 16:00 BST (UTC+1) or on-demand the following day.*
