The Menstrual Cycle Support course has been boosted by European Regional Development Funding, through the eHealth Productivity and Innovation in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (EPIC) project.
Menstrual Cycle Support Founder, Kate Shepherd Cohen, says:
“Thanks to the EPIC grant we have been able to deliver a higher quality, clinically-backed and peer reviewed multimedia e-Learning course, available on referral through the GP surgery on social prescription.
The grant, alongside corporate sponsorship, enables the course to be free to participants, which furthers our vision of universal menstrual literacy to ease menstrual suffering, for the benefit of all, at work, in education, with friends and at home”.
Professor Ray Jones, Director of EPIC and the Centre for Health Technology at the University of Plymouth
“EPIC works with a range of innovators with ideas across the whole health landscape, whether they are just at the start of their journey and need funding to explore their ideas, or if they are a bit further along and they would like to test their technologies. Our role is to offer opportunities for the business to grow and scale through aspects such as funding or business development training and events.”
