This year’s gala honorees will be presented the Women’s Health Visionary Award and include:

“The Society for Women’s Health Research is delighted to honor Myrna Blyth, Senator Susan Collins, and Dr. Mary Lake Polan for their lifetime of exemplary leadership and commitment to professional excellence,” said Amy M. Miller, PhD, SWHR president and CEO. “These extraordinary visionaries are powerful role models who have made unique contributions in advancing women’s health.”

SWHR will also host its Second Annual Gala Symposium on March 22, 2017, which will convene some of the best minds in health policy. The symposium will feature a series of presentations on the existing challenges and important advances needed to improve the health of women of all ages. Based on this discussion, SWHR will identify strategic next steps to addressing some of the most important policy issues related to women’s health.

From its inception, SWHR has worked to further women’s health and the study of biological sex differences and continues to raise awareness of the impact of sex differences on diseases and treatment. All event proceeds will benefit SWHR’s science, advocacy, and educational programs, which ensure that women’s health remains a national priority.
