The Ludeman Family Center for Women’s Health Research is regarded as one of the best places to conduct research that includes women and considers the distinct but linked concepts of sex (biological) and gender (social) differences.
We mentor and fund the next generation of researchers, supporting their cutting-edge research on issues that pose a significant threat to women’s health – cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and the intersection of mental health and physical health in those diseases. Join us in supporting new, life-saving discoveries and in learning more about women’s health across the lifespan.
Please join us on October 5 for the 2021 Annual Community Event featuring Jennifer H. Mieres, MD. Her talk is titled Heart Smart Solutions for Improving Health.
