Women x Women – Presented by The Jackson Laboratory

March 30, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us to learn more about the four greatest health challenges for individuals assigned female at birth (AFAB) – Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, heart disease and cancer – and the solutions being pursued at JAX. Our leading scientists will share insights on the disproportionate impact of these conditions on those AFAB and discuss how their research could empower those individuals to live longer, healthier lives.
