About Women's Health Research at Yale

Women’s Health Research at Yale is an interdisciplinary research center within Yale School of Medicine. Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of everyone. We do this by studying the health of women and examining health differences between and among women and men. Our goal is to change the landscape of medical and behavioral research, professional and personal practice, clinical education, and health policy to advance public health.

As we pursue our work, it is particularly important to use language that captures the different concepts of sex and gender so that our science and our findings can be more precise, respectful, and better serve everyone. Learn more about what we mean by sex and gender.
