Putting Science to Work for the Health of Women:
Update from the Office of Research on Women's Health
The Women’s health research is about more than investigating conditions and diseases that only or mostly affect women. Putting science to work for the health of women also requires intentional integration of sex and gender influences across the biomedical research continuum. Janine Clayton, M.D., NIH Associate Director for Research on Women’s Health and Director of the Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH), will discuss ORWH’s vision for women’s health research in 2018 and beyond. Health trends of U.S. women have fallen behind those of women in peer countries and U.S. men, highlighting the need for ORWH’s new strategic vision.
Please join GUIRR for a webinar with Dr. Clayton to talk about how ORWH is working across NIH’s Institutes and Centers to enhance and expand women’s health research. Dr. Clayton will also discuss other major facets of ORWH’s mission, including: helping to ensure that women are appropriately represented in NIH-funded clinical research; and improving the advancement of women in biomedical careers.
Free and open to the public.
