WHAT DOES YOUR SPONSORSHIP DO?
Keeps the Lights On
Through your generous sponsorship of IAWH, you help us maintain the most basic of services like keeping our website up and running and our Post Office box open.
Your sponsorship allows us to use the most current and professional grade platforms to deliver timely, relevant, and evidence-based women's health programs and provide you with information every month.
Makes Future Women's Health Presentations Possible
An institute is an organizational body created for a certain purpose. Your sponsorship makes us possible.
The Institute for the Advancement of Women’s Health (IAWH) is a non-profit organization. Founded in Woodbridge, VA, we connect rural, urban, suburban, exurban, and international, multicultural women of all the ages with evidence-based information to support a woman’s decision making about health care.
We conduct and apply community-based, public health research that leads to women becoming more knowledgeable and better informed participants on their health care and well-being journey.
Supports our Student Interns
IAWH is fertile ground for providing university students with real world work and learning opportunities. For the first time this year, IAWH is mentoring and guiding young adults as they perform evidence-based research, develop messages about women’s health, advance timely and innovative approaches to elevating and educating women about health and wellness while broadening and strengthening the IAWH audience. Interns are an essential part of the team providing you with more valuable content and opportunities to learn and protect your health. This year your sponsorship will provide students with unique opportunities like:
access to a lecture with Dr. Anthony Fauci on the nation’s future with COVID-19
access to a national lecture on the effectiveness of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), an anti-HIV medication that keeps HIV negative people from becoming infected and effectiveness in the U.S. campaign to End the HIV Epidemic
a discounted student membership to the American Public Health Association (APHA), and
a small stipend that can help defray the cost of student life.
Allows Us Latitude to Explore New Projects
We'll bet you don't know what goes into the hours and hours of development of an IAWH program. We identify an interesting topic and then conduct rigorous, evidence-based research on how the health topic uniquely impacts women. We then invite proven subject matter experts to speak and lead our discussions. We then develop and execute a promotion and outreach plan that involves the use of social media, blog, letters of invitation, email, and even word of mouth.
We love this work!
In the future we will explore new topics and revisit others, such as Autoimmune diseases (Lupus and Fibromyalgia), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, HIV and Women, Racism as a Public Health Issue Mental Health topics like Depression and Anxiety, Bipolar Disorders, and Alzheimer's and Dementia.
