As 2022 comes to a close, we at the Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) are proud of the work that we have accomplished over the last year to advance women’s health research, care, and advocacy. This important work could not have been done without the valuable contributions of our fellow partners and supporters in women’s health.
