6th Annual Vivian W. Pinn Symposium
2 pm - 5 pm
The NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health will hold the 6th Annual Vivian W. Pinn Symposium. In line with ORWH’s mission to put science to work for the health of women, this event serves as a critical forum for experts across sectors to communicate and collaborate for the advancement of women’s health and the careers of women in science. Key topics addressed in the symposium include:
- The nature and causes of gender inequity in academic medicine, how the pandemic has exacerbated these challenges, and how the pandemic can provide a disruptive opportunity to implement interventions to promote equity in a “new normal.”
- Lessons learned in the recent past, such as interventions to cope with increased family caregiving demands.
All patients, their families and NIH staff are invited to attend the performances in the Clinical Center atrium. The north atrium is a comfortable, welcoming gathering place at the center of the Clinical Center. These concerts are intended to support the Clinical Center's environment of care and healing. Strict social distancing measures will be maintained. Health and safety are our main concern.
