The Women's Health Research Institute's July reserch forum featuring Dr. Sheehan Fisher was a great success! Dr. Fisher is an Instructor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University and presented on fatherhood. Forum notes will be available soon!
WHRI Leadership Council member Melina Kibbe, MD, Professor of Surgery, Feinberg School of Medicine and co-chief of the Vascular Surgery Section at the Jessie Brown VA Medical Center addresses the concerns at the Veterans Affairs medical centers. Dr. Kibbe and colleagues Blaustein and Bakaeen came up with a list of recommendations to help transform the VA system in a Viewpoint in the June 19, 2014 edition of JAMA. Kibbe noted that her involvement with the WHRI has inspired her to become an advocate for change.
