Research component  will encourage basic and clinical research directed at the health problems affecting West Virginia’s rural female population as well as applied research focused on rural health care delivery and aging in the rural setting.

A key component of our agenda will be research focused on identifying gender-related health issues and developing strategies to improve delivery of services and quality of care. By broadening the knowledge base of women’s health issues through gender-specific research, we can more thoroughly understand the causes of illness and develop evidence-based strategies for the prevention and treatment of diseases and conditions women face throughout their lives.
