Afternoon Keynote Address: Meeting the Moment

  • Mary Woolley, M.A.

    President, Research!America Member, National Academy of Medicine Member, National Academies Board on Life Sciences and Board on Higher Education and Workforce

This presentation will explore the role of advocacy in empowering women’s health research. Research!America President and CEO Mary Woolley will touch briefly on the historical role of advocacy in advancing women’s health research, as leaders ‘met the moment.’ She will describe the challenges of today and comment on the urgency of meeting the moment now.  Given mixed public attitudes toward public science and scientists today, advocates - including scientists - must step up if we are to fully realize the promise of research to deliver on health for all.
