Center for Women’s Health Research (CWHR)

CWHR’s Mission:
Consistent with Meharry’s mission to improve the health and health care of minority and underserved communities, the CWHR strives to improve the health of women through excellence in Research, Education, Clinical Care, Community Partnerships and Advocacy. The CWHR is open to all women, however a special emphasis is directed to studying diseases that disproportionately impact women of color. This is in consideration of the striking disparities in the rates of these diseases (cancer, diabetes, heart disease, HIV) and their unfavorable outcomes in women from racial and ethnic minorities.
