Friends of ORWH Congressional Reception
January 25 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST
The Friends of the Office of Research on Women’s Health invite you to a congressional reception in celebration of Women’s Health Research Day, which commemorates the implementation of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Policy on Sex as a Biological Variable (SABV) in January 2016. The day aims to raise awareness of the historical underrepresentation of women in clinical trials, the importance of designing basic, preclinical, and biomedical research studies in females and males, and the need to disaggregate and analyze data by biological sex, all of which will lead to more effective, inclusive health care. The event will also spotlight the work of the Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) and recognize ORWH Director Janine Clayton, MD, FARVO, for her myriad contributions to women’s health.
