Society for Women’s Health Research IMAGINES IT -- SWHR’s Annual Gala Imagines the Future: Information Technology (IT) Transforms Women’s Healthcare
Date:4/28/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 28, 2013

Tonight, the Society for Women’s Health Research will host IMAGINE IT, their Annual Gala dinner, for the first time highlighting advances in information technology that empower women to take control of their healthcare, and technology innovations from smart phone applications, to electronic health records, and imaging advancements, that will improve patient care and women’s health outcomes.

Using technology to empower women to take control of their healthcare is the theme of the evening. Rose Stuckey Kirk, President Verizon Foundation, said “Verizon is committed to delivering innovative technology solutions to transform lives. We need collaboration to bring research out of the lab and into the translational space where woman as patients can connect with the education, tools and programs that will allow them to make lasting behavioral changes.”

Said Phyllis Greenberger, SWHR’s President and CEO, “For more than twenty years, SWHR has driven women’s health and research on biological differences to the forefront of medical research and policy and has transformed women’s health through science, advocacy, education, and now technology.”

“Tonight, I salute my long-time friend and colleague, and SWHR’s first president, Florence P. Haseltine, PhD, MD who has just won the prestigious 2013 Alma Dea Morani Renaissance Woman Award for the Foundation for the History of Women in Medicine. Dr. Haseltine is a board certified obstetrician and gynecologist, reproductive endocrinologist, biophysicist, journal editor, novelist, inventor, and advocate for women's health. She has truly helped to “further the practice and transform the understanding of medicine in our lifetime.”

During the evening’s program, the 8th SWHR-Medtronic Prize for Scientific Contributions to Women’s Health will be awarded to Mia Markey Ph.D., University of Texas at Austin. Sandra Cohen Kalter, Vice-
