The Laura W. Bush Institute for Women's Health was established to create a new approach
to women's health care. Working through a collaborative multidisciplinary network,
amazing discoveries have been made. Knowledge gained is propagating further research
and educational programs that benefit communities, patients and health care providers.
Modern day research proves that some diseases react differently in men and women,
which challenges health care professionals to design special approaches that provide
women's health information, disease diagnosis and treatment. The Institute has developed
an institution-wide infrastructure that benefits women's health.
Laura W. Bush Institute for Women's Health was established within the Texas Tech University
Health Sciences Center in August 2007. We work collaboratively with the following
institutes and schools within TTUHSC:
Vision & Mission
The Laura W. Bush Institute for Women's Health of the Texas Tech University Health
Sciences Center is active in communities across Texas empowering women through health
symposiums that enlighten and inspire them to expect nothing less than personalized
medicine because differences matter.
To maintain a national position as leaders in women's health and biological sex-based
medicine throughout Texas and the nation, while remaining committed to enriching the
lives of women and girls in our communities.
The Laura W. Bush Institute for Women's Health is dedicated to improving the lives
of women and girls in Texas and across the nation by advancing multidisciplinary science
in women's health. Recognizing that differences matter, we promote health, individually
inspired, through scientific investigation, translation of science into practice,
and providing outreach that impacts the community for today and tomorrow.
Scientific Investigation: we've devoted more than $3.5 million to ground-breaking research unique to women's
health because differences matter.
Translating Science to Practice: we've produced slide sets, modules, and videos to enhance curriculum that teaches
sex and gender differences in medical conditions.
Community Impact: we've inspired more than 85,000 women and girls to see themselves as smart, valuable,
and powerful people, motivating them to take control of their lives and health.
