Our Society of Friends

Our work would not be possible without your support

Support from the Society of Friends helps fund important research on women's health.

For two decades, Women's Health Research at Yale has led national efforts to translate new scientific knowledge into medical and personal practice to benefit public health. We must continue to evolve and advance.

But we can’t do it alone. We are grateful to have such generous and loyal supporters who share our goals.

WHRY is pleased to acknowledge gifts in support of the endowment fund and annual operating fund. We hope you will consider joining our Society of Friends to ensure that this center continues to drive great science forward. And to help and improve the lives of everyone.
