Advancing NIH Research on the Health of Women: A 2021 Conference


On October 20, 2021, the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Research on Women’s Health, in conjunction with the Advisory Committee on Research on Women’s Health (ACRWH), will host the “Advancing NIH Research on the Health of Women: A 2021 Conference.” The key topics to be discussed, as identified by Congress, are clinical practices related to rising maternal morbidity and mortality rates; increasing rates of chronic debilitating conditions in women; and stagnant cervical cancer survival rates.

In preparation for this event, NIH published a Federal Register notice requesting public comments to inform the conference. This comment period will remain open through September 15.
