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

President and Chief Regulatory Counsel, Medtronic Foundation will present the award of $75,000 to Dr. Markey. This award is presented to a female scientist in her early to mid-career, who has devoted a significant part of her work to sex differences research and has served as a role model and mentor for both colleagues and students.

GEOFFREY BEENE FOUNDATION ALZHEIMER'S INITIATIVE

Additionally, Meryl Comer, President and CEO of the Geoffrey Beene Foundation Alzheimer’s Initiative and Dr. Maria Freire, President of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, in association with SWHR, will announce the launch of the 2013 Geoffrey Beene Global NeuroDiscovery Challenge, which asks researchers to identify sex and gender differences in early cognitive decline. The Challenge is launched in support of WomenAgainstAlzheimer’s, a new nationwide network of prominent women leaders to advance Alzheimer’s research and public policy.

SWHR’s work has demonstrated that men and women’s brains are structurally and functionally different,” said Greenberger. “Studying these differences will transform our understanding of neurological disorders and will accelerate better preventative treatments, and hopefully, a cure.”

“Women are two-times at risk for Alzheimer’s because we outlive men, but we know little about other possible male/female differences. It’s time to find out why,” stated Comer. “By inviting researchers to ‘mine the data’ and tap into the investment by NIH and others in building the ADNI database, we also celebrate the critical role played by patients who have stepped up to be part of scientific studies by contributing their data to advance research,” added Dr. Maria Freire.

Over 500 technology innovators, philanthropists, government officials, healthcare executives, clinicians and members of the media will gather at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, in Washington, DC to focus on the future of women’s health where technolog
