Section of Women’s Health


he Section of Women’s Health, along with the Center for Research on Health Care, encompasses the Center for Women’s Health Research and Innovation (CWHRI). The CWHRI consists of a core group of health services researchers under the direction of Sonya Borrero, MD, MS, who are dedicated to improving women’s health through innovative, high-quality, health services research. Their research includes all aspects of women’s health, with particular focus on vulnerable populations, women in the military, racial disparities, and sex- and gender-based differences in health and disease. Faculty members have methodological expertise in the use of patient-centered outcomes, community-based participatory research, clinical epidemiology, qualitative methods, and implementation science. The CWHRI provides strong mentorship and training opportunities to students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty. Current research focuses on contraception, preconception health, prenatal care, obesity, sexual health through the menopausal transition, and lifestyle interventions.
