On October 8, nearly 170 people tuned in for the virtual UW Women’s Health and Health Equity Research Lecture and Symposium for amazing presentations: Erica Marsh, MD, of the University of Michigan, presented the keynote lecture “Ministration without Representation: The Essential Roles of Inclusion and Voice in Creating Health Equity.” We also learned about substance use policies in health systems and how they affect neonatal abstinence syndrome from Christine Durrance, PhD; patient-centered and autonomy-based contraceptive counseling from Health Disparities Research Scholar Leigh Senderowicz, ScD, MPH; and disparities in gynecologic cancer research funding from Ryan Spencer, MD.

This year’s event also included a virtual poster session, and we’re pleased to announce the 2020 Women’s Health and Health Equity Research Lecture & Symposium poster award winners:
