Dr. Vivian W. Pinn to receive inaugural Bernadine Healy Award
Date:12/9/2011

New Rochelle, NY -- Vivian W. Pinn, MD will be awarded the inaugural Bernadine Healy Award, to be presented at the 20th Annual Congress on Women's Health, March 16-18, 2012 in Washington, DC. Physicians, nurses, and allied healthcare providers from across the country will gather at the Congress to learn practical, clinical information, cutting-edge therapeutic protocols, advances in diagnosis and management, and innovative translational research advances that impact women's health care. Complete information is available on the Congress website.

The Bernadine Healy Award was created in honor of the work and memory of Bernadine Healy, MD, former National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director, Founding Editor of Journal of Women's Health, and a renowned advocate for women's health. Through her tireless passion and leadership, Dr. Healy encouraged discourse and exchange of information among health care professionals with the ultimate goal of promoting women's health as a high national priority.

Dr. Pinn recently retired as the first permanent director of the Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) at NIH, and has long been active in efforts to improve health and career opportunities for women and minorities and to raise awareness in the scientific community about the importance of sex and gender factors in basic science, clinical research, and health care. She most recently spearheaded a national effort to reexamine priorities for the women's health agenda for the 21st Century, involving advocates, scientists, policy makers, educators, and health care providers in a series of scientific meetings across the country that ultimately informed the ORWH's new strategic plan.

"There is no better way to honor Dr. Healy's memory than to recognize the contributions of Vivian Pinn, a truly visionary leader who has advanced women's health immeasurably," says Congress Co-Chair Wendy S. Klein, MD, Senior Deputy Director Emeritus of the VCU Institute for Women's Health and Deputy Editor of Journal of Women's Health.

The 20th Annual Congress on Women's Health is hosted by the VCU Institute for Women's Health and Journal of Women's Health, in collaboration with NIH Office of Research on Women's Health and National Cancer Institute. Dr. Klein and Co-Chair Susan G. Kornstein, MD, Executive Director of the VCU Institute for Women's Health and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Women's Health, will bring together outstanding faculty of the highest caliber for an array of informative sessions focusing on the most clinically relevant topics in women's health including cardiology, oncology, endocrinology, menopause, infectious disease, reproductive health, bone health, psychiatry, and common clinical conditions.

The Congress will offer up to 24.5 credit hours for physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, family physicians, and allied health care professionals. This activity is jointly sponsored by Global Education Group and Institute for Professional Education.
