Dr Ryan will explain the detrimental impact hectic lifestyles are having on everyone and the impact of fatigue and burnout on women’s hormones and health with long-term consequences.

She will also call on women in business to respect themselves more and demand more respect from others.

Businesswomen throughout the Mid West are welcome to attend the event which is free for Network Ireland Limerick Members and €20 for non-members.

According to Dr Ryan, women need to be empowered more and encouraged to slow down long enough to understand their own needs and build a more respectful relationship with themselves and others to prevent stress and burnout.

As well as serving as Consultant Physician and Endocrinologist at the Bon Secours Hospital in Limerick at Barringtons and Aut Even Hospital in Kilkenny, Dr Ryan is a Senior Lecturer with the Graduate Entry School (GEMS) at the University of Limerick since 2007.

Catriona O’Donoghue, President of Network Ireland Limerick, said, “Women are notorious for juggling and having too many balls in the air. This event is all about taking stock, checking in with how we’re doing and being aware of the harm fatigue and burnout can have on our bodies.”

The event starts with informal networking and refreshments at 6pm. It is FREE for Network Ireland Limerick members and only €20 for non-members.
