WHRI Monthly Forum-Kate Clancy, PhD (UIUC)

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM, Chicago

The Women's Health Research Monthly Forums were introduced by the Institute in September 2008. The monthly forums were developed to address a significant barrier to advancing women’s health research: lack of awareness among health professionals and researchers that sex and gender matter in health and disease. Through the monthly forums, the Institute provides a platform for leading professionals to present their evidence-based research that focuses on basic science, clinical applications, or social implications of sexual dimorphisms. Each month over 200 faculty and staff from Northwestern University and Northwestern Memorial Hospital attend the forum - some are new attendees and many more are returning attendees who have come back for additional authoritative women's health knowledge.

CRS Trainee Coffee and Conversation with Dr. Kate Clancy, "From Follicular Dynamics to Feminist Biology and Beyond"

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM, Chicago

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017, 3:00pm - 4:00pmLurie 10th Floor Conference Room, 303 East Superior Street, Chicago, IL 60611 Coffee, tea, and assorted snacks will be provided. Don't miss this opportunity to discuss scientific ideas and accomplishments with Dr. Clancy! "From Follicular Dynamics to Feminist Biology and Beyond" Kathryn Clancy, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Illinois, with additional affiliations in the Program for Evolution, Ecology, and Conservation, and the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science & Technology. Clancy’s research integrates life history, evolutionary medicine, and feminist biology to contest clinical definitions of normal in women’s health. Clancy’s critical research on the culture of science has also received widespread attention. She and her colleagues have empirically demonstrated the continued problem of sexual harassment and assault in the field sciences in a 2014 paper in PLOS ONE, and astronomy and physics in upcoming publications. Please RSVP for this event!
