Even when women have been included as subjects in clinical research, the effect of gender is not widely analyzed and reported by health outcomes.
Women's Health Research at Yale pioneers efforts to narrow the gulf in knowledge about women's health, trains new researchers to continue advancing the science, and translates findings into practice and public policy for the community we serve.
As part of its mission, the Center partners with community members and organizations to understand their needs and share vital health information for everyone to live happier, healthier, and more productive lives.
