Sex Cells: The Fight to Overcome Bias and Discrimination in Women’s Healthcare

April 14 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Help us celebrate Phyllis Greenberger’s accomplishments and lifetime commitment to women’s health!

Listen to what inspired Phyllis to publish her new book with Mayo Clinic Press, “Sex Cells,” which tells the story of how she and her allies in the U.S. government, NGOs, academia, medical research and public health advocacy got the scientific and medical world to recognize that women are unique.

Inside a museum dedicated to renewing and inspiring a love of words and language, hear from Phyllis about her 25-year fight to have female cells, lab animals and humans brought into medical research, so women can receive treatment that is appropriate and effective for a wide range of conditions.

The journey toward equal treatment and the understanding of sex and gender differences in prevention, diagnosis and treatment is still unfolding.

Join HealthyWomen, SWHR, and other leaders in women’s health on Sunday, April 14, in Washington, D.C., to hear about that journey — why it was, and still is, so important to do research specific to women/females.
