Women’s Health Research Day was a Success!

On April 17, 2023, the University of Illinois Center for Research of Women and Gender along with Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health program and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology hosted its 5th annual Women’s Health Research Day. The event featured two keynote speakers, Dr Rebecca Thurston, PhD, of the University of Pittsburgh and Dr. Kathleen Rospenda, PhD, of the University of Illinois Chicago. Dr. Thurston presented a talk entitled When the Heart Breaks: Trauma, Violence, and Women’s Cardiovascular Health. Dr. Rospenda presented a talk entitled Workplace Harassment and Health.

In addition to the keynote speakers, students and faculty were invited to submit abstracts for a chance to be selected to deliver an oral abstract at the event and to present a poster regarding their research. 29 abstracts were presented and all submissions were invited to present posters at the event symposium.

Congratulations to the Abstract winners: Katherine Craemer & Elizabeth Wenzel and the Poster winners: Nandi Tumbayar and Monica Haughn!
