Johns Hopkins CWHSGR 15th Annual Spring Symposium: Gender, COVID-19, and the Social Determinants of Women's Health

The Johns Hopkins Center for Women's Health, Sex, & Gender Research is excited to announce our spring symposium, to take place Tuesday, May 24th, 2022.

Women, men, and gender diverse people have been differentially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Evidence shows that the social, economic, and non-COVID-19 related health impacts have disproportionately affected women. Women, for example, have experienced greater job losses, increased caregiving responsibilities, increased rates of gender-based violence, and barriers to accessing essential maternal and reproductive health care. Gendered risk and vulnerability, however, is not equally distributed, and some groups of women have experienced these effects even more acutely. This symposium will explore how women have been affected by COVID-19 and related response measures (or lack thereof), and what has been done, or should be done, to effectively address these inequities.

The symposium is hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Women’s Health, Sex, and Gender Research and Morgan State University and will include two virtual panels from 9:00am - 12:30pm followed by an in-person reception from 4:00pm - 6:00pm. Food and drinks will be provided at the reception which will take place at 16 On the Park Rooftop Bar + Grille at the Residence Inn Baltimore, Johns Hopkins Medical Campus, 800 North Wolfe St. The venue has both outdoor and indoor space available.

Johns Hopkins CWHSGR 14th Annual Research Symposium: Social Determinants of Health

On May 11th, 2021, the Johns Hopkins Center for Women’s Health, Sex, and Gender Research was proud to host a virtual symposium featuring Keynote Speaker Monica McLemore, RN, PhD, FAAN, Associate Professor of Family Health Care Nursing, UCSF School of Nursing.  It was an inspiring and motivating day discussing social determinants of health from a variety of frameworks, as well as providing an opportunity for a series of junior researchers to present Seed Grant Supported research.

A recording of the event can be found here on our Center YouTube Page for any who missed it or would like to rewatch.

 Gender and COVID-19 Working Group

Spearheaded by the Johns Hopkins SADII-SCORE’s own Dr. Rosemary Morgan, a collaborative COVID-19 and Gender Working Group has worked to compile an ongoing list of resources related to the intersection of COVID-19 and sex/gender.

The Women’s Health Research Group began as an interdisciplinary group of faculty from the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine, Public Health and Nursing who sought to promote collaborative research on women’s health and gender differences in health across the three institutions.

Launched in 2008, we host networking sessions throughout the academic year that are open to faculty and trainees at all levels, and an annual symposium that highlights new research from junior faculty and trainees.To be added to the WHRG email list, click here
