CWHR is continually seeking ways to promote the essential work being done by researchers in alignment with our mission: Learning about diseases, disorders, and conditions that uniquely affect women, predominantly affect women, and affect women differently than men. This program is an opportunity to stimulate and showcase research being done by faculty and staff, graduate and undergraduate students, and postdocs (residents and fellows) of UNC and to encourage networking and multidisciplinary collaborations.
To that end, CWHR is also excited to use this event as an opportunity to promote the newly established UNC Women’s Health Multidisciplinary Consortium, whose mission is “Creating a trainee-focused, unified community of faculty, clinicians, and researchers with a vested interest in advancing the health of women at UNC.”
The Consortium will be launching their Works in Progress Seminar Series this coming Fall, with details to be announced soon. To get more information and stay updated on the group’s activities, please fill out the Interest Form. You can also follow the Women’s Health Multidisciplinary Consortium on Twitter. The WHMC is currently being supported by CWHR and the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, but anyone with an interest in women’s health research from any UNC program or department is encouraged to get involved!
