The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR®) has cancelled the “What a Difference an X Makes: Weighing in on Sex and Gender Differences in the Obesity Epidemic” conferences previously scheduled for Washington, D.C., on September 23 and for Atlanta on October 17.
As planning for the conference developed, SWHR decided to take a fresh look at this event and explore new ways to achieve our goal of providing cutting edge, scientific information to a diverse audience. This action allows SWHR to explore innovative ways of providing quality events and sharing the latest developments in women’s health with medical researchers, health care providers and policy makers.
In 2014 alone, SWHR has taken part in major national conferences and symposia on a wide range of important issues, including women’s sleep, the microbiome, and musculoskeletal health. The Society will participate in additional academic and scientific events throughout the rest of the year and we will be looking at an array of opportunities and platforms to highlight women’s health issues in 2015.
SWHR will continue to keep you informed about important research in the biological differences between women and men. For the latest updates, follow SWHR on Twitter @SWHR, on Facebook or at SWHR.org.
Thank you for your continued support of the Society for Women’s Health Research.
