Our Track Record:

The Network has a long history of raising awareness around several chronic conditions that disproportionately affect women (and are sometimes minimized or dismissed by their health care providers). We’ve run features on chronic pain conditions, endometriosis, long COVID, PCOS, and more. 

What’s Next:

The Network will be broadening our chronic conditions scope of influence by focusing on common cardiovascular diseases and their unique impacts on women, such as diabetes, hypertension, and coronary heart disease, and HIV
