Wayne State University Debuts its New Office of Women’s Health

Wayne State University in Detroit recently launched its new Office of Women’s Health. According to the university, the office will work to improve the health of women to maximize the opportunity for families to thrive and achieve economic security. It will empower all women to lead their healthiest lives through all stages of life by implementing five core pillars: education outreach, research and development, the implementation of science, working to place more women in scientific research and helping to develop policy.

The new office is under the direction of Sonia Hassan, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology and associate vice president. Professor Hassan stated that “collaboration across the entire university and partnerships with community organizations, will be keys to the office’s approach. We will employ a trans-disciplinary approach to women’s health throughout the university. The office also will collaborate with external stakeholders to play an overarching role toward transforming health care for women and their children, creating healthier families.”

Dr. Hassan earned her medical degree at Wayne State University.
