Your gift will support the strategic functions of the Women’s Global Health Institute.

The Women’s Global Health Institute (WGHI) is dedicated to improving women’s health through research and training by proactively identifying the causes and prevention strategies of diseases related to women. The Institute is envisioned to become a national model for comprehensive, integrated, interdisciplinary and coordinated research focused on chronic disease prevention on a global scale. The focus is in four core research areas:

  • Wellness
  • Bone Health
  • Women’s Cancers
  • Neurodegenerative Diseases

To sustain the Institute, attracting and retaining visionary leadership and moving research forward for the long term, private philanthropy is needed. In addition, we seek partnerships with companies, foundations, government agencies, and nongovernmental organizations interested in improving women’s health globally. 

Resources will support the WGHI priorities through the following strategic functions:

  • Pilot Research Grants
  • Graduate Research Assistantships
  • Core Research Grants
  • Sustainability Fund (operational support)
