The First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden, visited Atlanta this week to raise awareness about the urgent need for increased investment in women’s health research. This initiative is part of the White House Initiative on Women’s Health Research, which aims to fundamentally change the approach to and funding of women’s health research. Dr. Biden emphasized that women should be at the forefront of healthcare decisions and not an afterthought.
The roundtable discussion was facilitated by Dr. Carolyn M. Mazure, Chair of the Initiative and Women’s Health Research at Yale Director. The conversation focused on the importance of public-private partnerships in improving women’s lives through increased research investment and the necessity for new and expanded partnerships. Atlanta’s reputation for innovation and collaboration was highlighted during the discussion, with participants expressing their admiration for the work being done in the city.
Dr. Mazure expressed her excitement about the innovations in research and collaboration, particularly in partnership with communities and corporations, with a focus on enhancing women’s understanding and health. Influential leaders such as Monica M. Bertagnolli, Linda Goler Blount, Stefanie Diaz, among others participated in the roundtable discussion.
The initiative seeks to learn from leaders in the field to continue driving progress in women’s health. To learn more about this vital initiative, visit [website].
