ITM Grand Rounds

The event is finished.

Join us for ITM Grand Rounds featuring a thought-provoking panel discussion commemorating the 30th anniversary of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Revitalization Act, a landmark legislation that reshaped the landscape of women’s health research and advocacy. This event delves into the pivotal role played by the NIH Revitalization Act in advancing the health and well-being of women. The session, titled “Breaking Barriers: Celebrating Thirty Years of the NIH Revitalization Act and Women’s Health Research,” is co-sponsored by the three Chicagoland Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) hubs: ITM, Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, and the University of Illinois at Chicago Center for Clinical and Translational Science.

The panel discussion will bring together experts, researchers, and advocates to reflect on the impact of the NIH Revitalization Act on women’s health. The Act, enacted in 1993, was a watershed moment, ensuring the inclusion of women in clinical trials and catalyzing research on diseases affecting women disproportionately.

This event is open to everyone passionate about women’s health, from researchers and healthcare workers to advocates and members of the public!
