Join the Women's Health Research Institute on May 12, 2015 in a celebration of women's health. This annual conference and expo features a keynote international speaker on a women's health issue, panel discussions led by experts in women's health from multiple health disciplines, exhibits on health services and community resources for women, and scientific posters on the latest research projects on women's health. The event will take place on the 3rd floor of Prentice Women's Hospital from 9:00am-3:00pm.
The Women's Health Research Institute has taken a new approach to understanding women's health and will be launching the Illinois Men's Health Registry next month! 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. Check back May 1 for more information!
