Institute for Women’s Health

The Institute for Women’s Health is enhancing the health and well-being of women across their lifespan through research, education and advocacy.

We also offer a variety of exercise, sports and nutrition services to our students and the Denton and Houston communities at large. We provide both health and fitness consultations as well as health and sport performance-related information.

Revenues generated from the evaluations are used to continue the evaluation program and to support researchers and students in their research endeavors at the Institute for Women’s Health.
