Putting Our Heads Together: Diagnostic Innovations for Alzheimer’s Disease

  • This event has passed.

June 6, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 3:45 pm EDT

Diagnostic tests and procedures offer opportunities to detect diseases, monitor disease progression, guide treatments, and evaluate treatment effectiveness. Some diagnostic tests are invasive, such as a biopsy or endoscopy; whereas others are noninvasive, such as x-rays and ultrasound imaging procedures.

Innovations in diagnostics provide access to health information, helping women make informed decisions about their health care at every stage of their lives. Screening and diagnostic testing can lead to earlier detection of disease, improve health outcomes, and contribute toward reducing health disparities among women. Research seeking to expand the development and availability of diagnostic tools for conditions that exclusively, differently, or disproportionately affect women is invaluable in furthering women’s health across sectors.

SWHR is hosting a series of public forums to share educational information about the importance and value of innovative diagnostics throughout the lifespan and across disease states and conditions. The events will discuss how to improve health outcomes for diseases and conditions that disproportionately or differently affect women, with special a focus on cancer and healthy aging.

The 2023 SWHR Value of Diagnostics within Women’s Health series includes:
