Women's Health Can be Improved by Studying MEN and Women

The Women's Health Research Institute has taken a new approach to understanding women's health and has just launched the Illinois Men's Health Registry!! To address the traditional lack of inclusion of women in clinical studies that affect both sexes, the WHRI created the Illinois Women's Health Registry, matching over 1,000 women to clinical studies across Illinois. Now we are using the same tactic to increase the inclusion of men in sex-differentiating studies by opening the Illinois Men's Health Registry. You can access the Men's Registry at www.mensregisty.northwestern.edu.

  All Illinois males over the age of 18 are invited to particpate.    The press release is available HERE.
