The 5th Annual NIH Vivian W. Pinn Symposium, the NIH signature event that honors the first full-time director of ORWH and is held during National Women’s Health Week. Titled “Integrating Sex and Gender Into Biomedical Research as a Path for Better Science and Innovation,” this year’s symposium will illustrate the scientific, societal, and economic opportunities of integrating sex and gender into biomedical research.
Attendees will explore strategies to do the following:
Create bridges and capacity across the scientific enterprise to build a broad-based network of government, nonprofit, academic, and business organizations.
Integrate sex and gender considerations into the research enterprise.
Apply a multidimensional perspective to women’s health to advance the integration of sex and gender considerations via transdisciplinary approaches and partnerships.
