What is Katz Institute for Women's Health?


­National Women's Health Week serves as an annual reminder for women to make their health a priority and build positive health habits for life.


Katz's Institute for Women's Health supports much needed change in women’s health care. When it comes to health and medicine, women have long been understudied, undertreated and misdiagnosed.


We think it’s time to change that.

Raising Awareness for Women's Health


There’s a dirty little secret in health care that doesn’t get the attention it deserves: Female patients are continuously gaslighted about their physical and mental health. There’s currently a stark gender gap in health research funding across the board, even when it comes to diseases that disproportionately impact women.



Alarming Statistics


  • ❤️‍🩹 5 years after a heart attack, half of women die, compared with 36% of men.
  • ❤️‍🩹 Less than half of women know that heart disease is the leading killer of women.
  • ❤️‍🩹 Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women in the United States, yet only one-third of patients enrolled in clinical trials are female.
  • ❤️‍🩹 Women can have a heart attack without showing any signs of plaque in their blood vessels. And, they're less likely to be prescribed medications to lower the risk of a second heart attack.
