The First Lady and Ms. Berry teamed up to come to UIC to bring continued visibility to the first-ever White House Initiative on Women’s Health Research, and to showcase the work of Dr. Pauline Maki, Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology and Senior Director of Research at the Center for Research on Women and Gender at UIC. Dr. Biden emphasized during her remarks that, “Halle and I are here today because the University of Illinois Chicago is doing groundbreaking research on menopause. Every woman will be affected by menopause; yet there’s a stunning lack of information about how to manage and treat its symptoms. UIC is working to change that.”
