Women's Health Research: Building knowledge to meet women's needs
This new initiative aims to substantially advance research and expand community/university partnerships in the study of women's health as well as increase educational opportunities in women's health for women of color, of varied ethnic backgrounds and disadvantaged women. The initiative will build on research now being done at UWM in such areas as the impact of welfare reform on the lives and health of low-income women, personal and workplace factors that affect the choice and ability to breastfeed, women and cardiovascular disease, adolescent pregnancy prevention, breast cancer screening among minority women and exercise physiology.
