SWHR’s "What a Difference an X Makes: Weighing in on Sex and Gender Differences in the Obesity Epidemic" conference (X Conference) is designed to raise awareness about the importance of sex differences in various diseases and conditions that affect both men and women or women disproportionately. This conference will address the state-of-the-science in various scientific fields, while highlighting future research and gaps in knowledge, particularly as they pertain to obesity and women's health.
SWHR’s X Conference is geared toward a multidisciplinary audience of researchers from academic institutions, health care providers, patient advocacy groups, federal agency employees, representatives of the pharmaceutical industry, media reporters, students, science writers, and the general public. The X Conference gives SWHR an opportunity to remind stakeholders of the importance of understanding the biological and physiological differences between men and women and how these differences affect women's health.
This year, SWHR is proud to host its fifth annual X Conference in Washington, D.C., on September 23 and an inaugural regional conference in Atlanta on October 17 co-sponsored by Morehouse School of Medicine. Both conferences are free and open to the public, although space is limited.
