The NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) is launching a virtual speaker series titled Diverse Voices: COVID-19, Intersectionality, and the Health of Women, to disseminate key COVID-19 research findings that (1) are relevant to diverse groups of women and (2) incorporate a multidimensional sex-and-gender focus. The speaker series also aims to increase public awareness, understanding, and engagement with COVID-19 research. Each session of the series will include the author(s) of a paper relevant to the health of women; in plain language, speakers will present specific takeaways from their publication for researchers, clinicians, and the public. The goal of the speaker series is both to amplify research relevant to the health of women and to support informed decisions about therapeutic or vaccine trial and other research participation by diverse women.

The inaugural session will take place January 27, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. EST and will feature Dr. Ana Langer and Dr. Jewel Gausman, who will discuss their commentary piece titled “Sex and Gender Disparities in the COVID-19 Pandemic .”
