science events

SWHR routinely convenes meetings of diverse scientific experts, clinicians, patients, and health care stakeholders to effect change in women’s health.

SWHR’s science events often serve as the foundation for our multiyear programs, known as SWHR’s Interdisciplinary Science Networks, which seek to identify research gaps and address unmet needs in diseases and conditions that disproportionately or differently affect women.
