In the Women’s Health Studies minor you’ll focus on the societal factors that influence women’s health, as well as how their health needs are met by healthcare systems and practitioners alike. You’ll address issues such as research gaps in women’s health, the need for public policy evaluation and advocacy, and how technology can improve the medical lives of women around the world.

This minor is based on advanced practice nursing and midwifery theory, but is open to all Penn graduate students with a strong interest in women’s health.
