Join HealthyWomen for our upcoming congressional briefing as we explore the importance and current challenges of including women of reproductive age in clinical trials. Gain a greater understanding of the requirements women must meet to participate in a clinical trial and how those guidelines have become more complicated with new state reproductive health laws in place, especially as it relates to meeting diversity and inclusion goals. Panelists will also highlight the importance of increasing clinical trials that focus on maternal health, specifically the study of pregnant and lactating women.
