Women's Health Research Institute Monthly Forum - Dr. Teresa Woodruff, WHRI 10th Anniversary

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.  There are three key objectives of the monthly forums: 1) To present current links between basic science research, clinical research and social/behavioral research to advance women's health. 2) To provide support and role models for emerging women's health scholars via those who are already conducting sex- and gender-specific research, and 3) To encourage more sex- and gender-based research studies and clinical care.
