January 25: Women's Health Research Day in the City of Chicago!

The City of Chicago has dedicated January 25 as Women's Health Research Day! 

On January 25, 2016, the National Institute of Health (NIH) released a policy requiring sex to be included as a variable in all grant submissions. Historically, sex has not always been a topic of consideration in scientific research and clinical trials, yet the way men and women react to medications, diseases and treatment differ. Today, we celebrate 2 years since this policy has been enacted as well as a new proclamation marking January 25 as Women’s Health Research Day in the City of Chicago. This day will bring further outreach and exposure on why sex inclusive research is vital to the health of all people.
