2013 SWHR Annual Gala Dinner - Imagine IT Monday, April 29, 2013
The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) held our annual Gala Dinner on Monday, April 29, 2013, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C. This is an extremely important event for SWHR. Your participation in the dinner directly funds programs and ongoing activities in science, advocacy, and education to advance women’s health through initiatives unlike any other organization.
The 2013 Gala focused for the first time on mobile health technology, imaging, advances and innovations in women’s health, and future technologies to improve patient care. Also, during the evening’s program, the eighth annual $75,000 SWHR-Medtronic Prize for Scientific Contributions was awarded to a mid-level scientist for her research on sex differences.
SWHR is widely recognized as the thought leader in research on biological differences and is dedicated to transforming women’s health through science, advocacy, and education. We encourage the study of biological differences that may affect the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, and promote the inclusion of women and minorities in clinical trials.
SWHR’s dinner is the annual must-attend event on health in our Nation’s capital: More than 600 individuals gather at the reception and dinner, including members of Congress and the Administration, clinicians and researchers from federal agencies, academia, and health industry; healthcare providers, advocates for health promotion, and disease awareness organizations; professional, scientific, and medical associations; and individuals interested in the advancement of women's health.
Thanks to the generous backing of our supporters, SWHR has moved women’s health and research on biological differences to the forefront of medical research and policy.
*Because the dinner is fully underwritten, all funds raised will be used to support SWHR's 2013 programs. The Society for Women's Health Research is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your contribution is tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law less the $125 per person projected dinner expense.
