Event Description

The Trans-NIH Committee on Integrative Health commemorates National Women’s Health Week by hosting their 2nd Annual Women’s Integrative Health Symposium.

The webinar will be held on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, and address the topic of “Integrative Health Modalities for the Treatment and Relapse Prevention of Substance Use Disorders in Women.” This subject has been identified as one of high morbidity and therefore high priority for further assessment in relevance to women’s health research.

All webinars sponsored by the Trans-NIH Committee on Integrative Health will bring together the world’s leading experts in the field to discuss evidence-based comprehensive integrative research and health care supporting women’s overall health and well-being in order to improve the quality of life for all women, including those with cancer or those who have survived cancer. The committee is partnering with the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH), the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), and the NIH Pain and Palliative Care Service for a unified approach to increasing women’s health awareness at NIH.
