May 7, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
The Organization for the Study of Sex Differences (OSSD) is proud to announce a Pre-Conference Event by PWHR and SWHR! Join on Sunday, May 7, 2023, 12 P.M. – 3 P.M. MST prior to the start of the OSSD Annual Meeting. Learn more about the OSSD Annual Meeting here.
Research has documented sex differences across a myriad of biological processes and diseases, however, the full impact of sex, gender, and hormones in areas such as cognition, heart disease, and mental health, is still not well understood. The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the urgency of applying a sex and gender-based life stages framework to promoting health for all individuals. This symposium will offer a cell to society perspective on sex and gender differences in aging that influence heart, brain, and mental health among older women. Panelists will present basic and translational research approaches, public health initiatives, and policy interventions that have been utilized to advance these key issues in mature women’s health. Attendees (whether they are researchers, trainees, health care providers, patient advocates, or policy stakeholders) will have the opportunity to engage in Q&A with the panel and roundtable conversations to discuss how they can contribute their expertise to address persistent gaps and barriers to advancing the health of women.
