The Center for Global Women’s Health (CGWH) is an interdisciplinary collection of faculty and students who collaborate on women’s health scholarship, education, and clinical practice relevant to global issues.
Research & Practice
Faculty practice and research use a health equity framework with a focus on social justice. Center members with scholarly and nursing practice interests aligned with the Center Mission and Vision serve as core faculty.
Faculty programs of research reside in three domains: Safety from Violence and Harm; Equity, Empowerment, and Advocacy; and Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. Faculty work to promote the health and well-being of women and girls, recognizing that as the health of women goes, so goes the health of the world.
Wendy Grube, PhD, CRNP, has been appointed the interim Director of the Center for Global Women’s Health. She has a long-standing commitment to global women’s health as demonstrated through her leadership in women’s health research, teaching, and practice.
