For National Women’s Health Week, we’d like to postulate a simple premise.
- Researchers can keep discovering new cures for disease based on the differences between men and women.
- Doctors can establish the necessary guidelines to treat illness specific to gender and sex –vs. a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
- The pharmaceutical industry can develop targeted medications that effectively treat and cure illness in a sex-specific manner.
- Men and women can be informed and become advocates for their own health and, most importantly, their family’s health.
From the Office of Women’s Health, information worth the share!
About the Doris A. Howell Foundation:
The Doris A. Howell Foundation for Women’s Health Research is committed to keeping the women we love healthy, advancing women’s health through research and educating women to be catalysts for improving family health in the community.
The organization does so by funding scholarships to students researching issues affecting women’s health; providing a forum for medical experts, scientists, doctors, and researchers to convey timely information on topics relevant to women’s health and the health of their families through its Lecture and Evening Series, and by funding research initiatives that improve the health of under-served women and increase awareness and advocacy in the community.
