Dr. Jill Biden’s recent visit to Atlanta was an opportunity to call for increased investment in women’s health research through the White House Research Initiative on Women’s Health. The roundtable discussion led by Dr. Caroline M. Mazure, Chair of the Initiative and Director of Women’s Health Research at Yale, emphasized the importance of public-private partnerships in advancing women’s understanding and health.
During her opening speech, Dr. Biden highlighted the need for a fundamental shift in the approach and funding of research on women’s health, with women being the first thought, not an afterthought, in healthcare. The roundtable participants included influential leaders such as Monica M. Bertagnoli, Linda Goller Blount and Stephanie Diaz, among others. They discussed the importance of new public-private partnerships in driving innovations needed to improve the health of all women.
Dr. Mazure expressed her admiration for the work being done in Atlanta, particularly its reputation for innovation and collaboration. She emphasized the role that community and corporate partnerships play in advancing women’s understanding and health through research and collaboration. The initiative seeks to learn from leaders in the field to continue driving advances in women’s health research and promote better outcomes for all women.
