SWHR’s mission is to promote research on biological differences in disease and improve women’s health through science, policy, and education. With this in mind, SWHR supports Sen. Duckworth and Rep. Schakowsky’s continued dedication to the promotion of women’s health and the furthering of women’s health-related research. The recognition of January 25 as a day dedicated to women’s health research will bring awareness to the need for further exploration of sex and gender differences in health care.
