Women Are So Different…Even When It Comes To Sleep
Society for Women's Health Research (SWHR) lives up to their mission as a national thought leader in the study of sex differences in disease, and their dedication to transforming women’s health through science, advocacy and education. SWHR has launched an interdisciplinary network on sleep to improve our understanding of the importance of sleep in women, which focuses on preventing sleep disorders and related conditions. SWHR is promoting interdisciplinary research into the biological differences between women and men with an initiative focused on studying sex and gender differences in sleep and the state of women’s sleep health.
The SWHR Interdisciplinary Network on Sleep will work collaboratively to identify areas of key unmet needs in women’s sleep health and conduct pilot studies to address those needs. There continues to be knowledge gaps in the medical community regarding women and sleep. This new SWHR Network will help address those gaps and highlight the importance of healthy sleep for everyone. Much of the medical literature today is devoted to sleep issues that face men. There needs to be more momentum toward studying these issues in women too.
