Rachel Snyder Good, Strategic Counsel, moderates a panel discussion, "30 Years of Women in Clinical Research - What It Means for You," as part of the What's Nyoo! series hosted by Nyoo Health.
This session celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the NIH Revitalization Act of 1993, which required National Institutes of Health funded researchers to enroll women and ethnic/racial minorities into clinical research trials. While we have made strides since, women’s health still remains insufficiently researched.
Rachel will lead a conversation with three startup founders – Lyndsey Harper, Sipra Laddha, and Jessica Thurmond. They will share their perspectives on the need for more research, data, and funding for women’s health, and on what it means for them as they develop new solutions for women in the areas of sexual health and wellness, maternal mental health, and breast and gynecologic cancers.
The event also features a discussion of how the lack of clinical research impacts our day-to-day lives. Sara Petrie and Ashley Kindsvatter, founders and hosts of the United SHE Stands podcast, present a round of virtual trivia on improving women’s health.
