Description: 2nd Annual Vivian Pinn Symposium

The NIH Vivian W. Pinn Symposium was established in recognition of Dr. Vivian W. Pinn’s longstanding leadership in women’s health research. Throughout her 20-year career as director of the Office of Research on Women’s Health, Dr. Pinn led NIH efforts to implement and monitor the inclusion of women and minorities in clinical research funded by NIH. The annual seminars are held during National Women’s Health Week and feature key topics and speakers relevant to scientific audiences or the general public. This year’s panel will address multiple domains that influence the health of women in the United States, draw relationships to larger contexts of families and communities, and highlight issues related to the experiences that affect women’s health.

Dr. Ana Langer, Professor of the Practice of Public Health and Director of the Women and Health Initiative at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health at Harvard University, is respected worldwide as a leader in using research findings to influence policy and improve the overall quality of health care for women and families. For more than 25 years, she has been a leading researcher, programmer, and advocate for the improvement of women’s health.

Dr. Afaf Ibrahim Meleis is Professor of Nursing and Sociology and Dean Emerita of the School of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania. Through mentorship and research, she advanced transitions theory, which focuses on assisting nurses in facilitating patients’, families’, and communities’ healthy transitions. Her work has been translated globally into policy, research, and evidence-based practice.

Dr. Jennifer Montez, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Gerald B. Cramer Faculty Scholar of Aging Studies at Syracuse University, studies inequalities in adult mortality across education levels and geographic areas within the United States. She is particularly interested in why the growing inequalities have been most troublesome among women. Her current work on this topic blends perspectives from social demography and feminist geography to investigate the role of states in shaping women’s and men’s mortality in unique ways.
