Hosted by the Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, this groundbreaking national summit explored gender equity in biomedical science. The summit also commemorated the 20th anniversary of the NIH Revitalization Act of 1993 – a landmark law that required all NIH-funded biomedical research to include women and minorities. National leaders issued a strong call to action on how to improve women’s health and achieve health equity for all.
The Division of Women’s Health and the Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital are committed to improving the health of women and transforming their medical care.
