Who We Are
The Jacobs Institute of Women’s Health is based at the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University and publishes the peer-reviewed journal Women's Health Issues. Our mission is to identify and study aspects of healthcare and public health, including legal and policy issues, that affect women’s health at different life stages; to foster awareness of and facilitate dialogue around issues that affect women’s health; and to promote interdisciplinary research, coordination, and information dissemination.
In a Feb. 8 webinar, speakers from the Jacobs Institute, the GW Center for Community Resilience, and the Institute for Women's Policy Research will unveil a national policy agenda, "Promoting Health and Wellbeing Across the Lifespan."
Cassondra Marshall, DrPH, MPH, has joined the Women’s Health Issues Editorial Board.
The Women's Health Issues Editorial Board selected a winning article and two honorable mentions for the 2022 Charles E. Gibbs Leadership Prize
