What is the blog?
The Women's Health Blog brings you original bi-weekly content to help demystify the complexity of women's health research while reflecting the multifaceted nature of women and gender-diverse people through two types of blogs. The first is a research blog that serves as a platform for new researchers to broadcast their findings to diverse audiences by writing on a topic of their expertise. The second is the Behind the Science blog series, which are Q&A interview-style blogs that aim to increase the visibility of diverse individuals who have been historically underrepresented in academia and beyond by showcasing their incredible work. We invite you to take a look around and offer your thoughts, experiences and feedback on our blog here. If you want to write a blog post, check out our writing guidelines and submit your pitch here.
We strive to bring you up to date research on a variety of topics. When reading our blogs, please note the date they were published to gauge how recent the research is. No information on our blog should be used as a substitute for direct medical advice from a qualified doctor or clinician. Instead, we encourage you to print out our blogs and bring them to your healthcare provider as supplementary material.
