SWHR is the official nonprofit partner for Equal Research Day, today, June 10!


Women were not required to be in U.S. clinical research until June 10, 1993, when the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Revitalization Act of 1993 was signed into law. Among the law’s requirements for NIH-funded research was ensuring that women and minorities are included in all clinical research. Now, twenty-nine years later, we have made progress, but women are still underrepresented in research and are diagnosed on average four years later than men across hundreds of diseases.

That’s why Evvy created #EqualResearchDay: to promote inclusive research, tell women's health stories, and raise awareness for the gender health gap.

The Society for Women's Health Research (SWHR) is proud to have been chosen by Evvy as the official nonprofit partner for Equal Research Day. 

As a partner, proceeds from all Equal Research Day collection items will go to SWHR. Evvy is also hosting a social media drive to collect donations for SWHR.
