As a member of the Board of the
Office of Research on Women’s Health, we invite the AMWA community to participate in a special Congressional Reception recognizing Women’s Health Research Day.
Women’s Health Research Day commemorates the implementation of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Policy on Sex as a Biological Variable (SABV) in January 2016. The day aims to raise awareness of the historical underrepresentation of women in clinical trials, the importance of designing basic, preclinical, and biomedical research studies in females and males, and the need to disaggregate and analyze data by biological sex, all of which will lead to more effective, inclusive health care.
The FORWH Women’s Health Research Day Congressional Reception will also spotlight the work of the Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) and recognize ORWH Director Janine Clayton, MD, FARVO, for her myriad contributions to women’s health.
