Saudi Women’s Progress in the Health Sector Webinar March 14th

If you are curious about nursing in Saudi Arabia, or women’s healthcare in Saudi Arabia, this Wednesday March 14th (I know it is late notice) Dr. Elham Al Ateeq, the Dean of the Nursing College at the King Saud bin Abdulaziz University in Saudi Arabia is presenting a one-hour webinar.  A Webinar is similar to a radio show.


I think this is a great opportunity for those interested in these issues to listen to a woman based in Saudi Arabia.


Dr. Al Ateeq has a Masters in Nursing Administration from Northeastern University and a Ph. D. in Nursing from George Mason University.  She will be speaking on Saudi Women’s Progress in the Health Sector.  The interview is to include an overview of the past and present positions of Saudi women in the health sector and a comparison of their progress in the health sector versus other industries in Saudi Arabia.


This offering is through the Fielding Graduate Institute’ Worldwide Network for Gender Empowerment.  My friend Fariba Enteshari just shared this event information with me.


I don’t have any experience with this type of seminar but it appears to be open to interested parties by simply accessing the following links.


The Webinar is at 9:30am Pacific Standard Time (GMT -07:00)

      Hi Ally,

      I don’t think there was a related video. My understanding was this was a webinar, – a live online seminar or discussion. It’s over now.

      Maybe if you look at their website they maintained an audio file.

      Good luck, I am happy it was of interest to someone.

    Oh that’s a shame, would have been interesting to watch. I thought a recording may have been uploaded however it seems not.

    Many thanks for your response,
