Join the Laura W. Bush Institute and Make a Difference in Women’s Health

Because differences matter, LWBIWH improves the lives of women and girls through research, education and outreach.

The Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health (www.laurabushinstitute.org) (LWBIWH) is accepting new members. Health care providers from all disciplines are invited to apply for membership in a progressive multi-campus and multi-disciplinary organization focusing on women’s health and sex- and gender-based medicine.

The institute has awarded more than $800,000 in seed grants to faculty in all schools, several of which have led to extramural funding including the National Institutes of Health in gender differences medicine. Outreach activities in Lubbock, Amarillo, the Permian Basin and San Angelo have raised funds, educated consumers, and brought attention to women’s health.

LWBIWH members have the opportunity to network with fellow TTUHSC and Angelo State University College of Health and Human Services faculty and receive an invitation to the institute’s annual networking meeting and quarterly interdisciplinary interest groups; apply for seed grants and the Speakers Bureau for external speaking opportunities with potential stipend and national recognition.

Members also get the chance to be a part of a variety of views in the field of sex-and gender-medicine including research, professional education program development, and/or community outreach.

Membership is based upon academic interest and support in the science of women’s health and sex- and gender-based medicine. Application for membership is made through the office of the LWBIWH. Approval will be determined based upon alignment with the institute’s mission.
