The Gender and Health Education Initiative was created to support the development of health science education resources that examine the impact of gender on health and healthcare delivery.
The GHEI has 2 guiding principles:
- Promote educational projects that explore the relationships of gender and health
- Assist educators and clinicians in research surrounding Gender & Health
We do this by offering competitive grants to researchers who take on projects surrounding health and gender, offering advice and resources to students and researchers, and the gathering of well-known researchers at events.
The May Cohen Lecture in Women's Health was established to honour Dr. May Cohen, Professor Emeritus, Department of Family Medicine and the founding Director of the Women's Health Office. The May Cohen Lecture is held every two years.
