What We Do

Closing the Gap in Women’s Health Research

 

Until the 1990s, health research has focused primarily on men despite women and men presenting different symptoms and responding differently to medications and treatments. In addition, women receive different care based on social norms and implicit bias. Research findings are rarely applied to women as well as unique social influences seldom considered.

 

Our work is aimed at changing biased research by supporting researchers’ work that considers the distinct but linked concepts of sex and gender differences—both of which impact women’s health and well-being. By focusing our research on, but not limiting it to, the diseases that most threaten women’s health, we are discovering life-saving preventative measures. From reducing obesity and treating diabetes in adolescent girls to pioneering technological advances to better identify and treat heart failure in women across the lifespan. Our mission is clear: 

Healthy Women. Healthy World
