The Women's Health Blog Turns One!

Back to Announcements

Thursday, May 6, 2021 - 15:07

What a year it has been! The blog had over 3,000 readers from all around the world. We were lucky to share the work of talented trainees from all levels, and we’re just getting started.

Our upcoming goals for the year include expanding our impact by diversifying our readership and highlighting the work of underrepresented groups of researchers. We are also excited to continue offering knowledge translation opportunities to trainees interested in sharing their work. Additionally, our "Behind the Science" series is now in full swing. If you would like to be featured or know someone you would like to see interviewed, email us at

Please fill out this feedback form if you have comments or suggestions about how we can improve the blog or to share what you love about it.
