WWHF has administered the awards of hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants and scholarships, supporting the work of women scientists and researchers.
The WWHF focuses on supporting women in medical research fields as they have been historically underrepresented in this work. Studies conducted wit hmale participants are often generalized to all people, excluding women’s voice and unique health concerns. As women assume leadership positions at research institutions, women’s health concerns have become less and less marginalized. It all begins with a healthy woman!
