About the Center for the Advancement of Women's Health

Graphic identity image for the Center for the Advancement of Women's HealthThe Center for the Advancement of Women's Health serves three primary purposes: to provide high-quality comprehensive medical services for women in a clinical facility located on the second floor of the Kentucky Clinic; to educate patients and the community overall about women's health through educational and community outreach programs; and to expand medical research opportunities for women that encourage advancements in the field of women's health through our Kentucky Women's Health Research Registry and clinical trials.

The Center for the Advancement of Women's Health at the University of Kentucky incorporates five (5) areas of emphasis including research, education, clinical services, community outreach, and leadership. The Center's mission is to:

  1. Create new knowledge towards the understanding and improvement of women's health through clinical and basic research initiatives
  2. Train primary care practitioners in gender-specific medicine and sensitize all health practitioners to understand and respond to the health care concerns and needs of women
  3. Provide gender-specific diagnostic, treatment and preventive health care services in a coordinated, comprehensive and compassionate manner
  4. Share women's health resources and information with consumers, communities, health care professionals, educators, and policy makers
  5. Enhance the professional development of women at all academic levels within the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center, and increase recruitment, retention, promotion and advancement of women faculty

Women are actively involved in the design of our services and the evaluation of our success in accomplishing our goals and meeting the needs of Kentucky's women. Evaluation is an ongoing process that provides the Center with valuable feedback about the medical services, educational resources, and research efforts of the Center.
