WHRI Monthly Forum - "Expanding the Scope of Mindfulness" Dr. Inger Burnett-Zeigler
The Women's Health Research Monthly Forums were introduced by the Institute in September 2008. The monthly forums were developed to address a significant barrier to advancing women’s health research: lack of awareness among health professionals and researchers that sex and gender matter in health and disease. Through the monthly forums, the Institute provides a platform for leading professionals to present their evidence-based research that focuses on basic science, clinical applications, or social implications of sexual dimorphisms. Each month over 200 faculty and staff from Northwestern University and Northwestern Memorial Hospital attend the forum - some are new attendees and many more are returning attendees who have come back for additional authoritative women's health knowledge.
