About the Institute

The Institute for Women’s Health (IWH), formerly known as the Center for Research on Women’s Health, was established on the TWU-Denton campus in 1993. In 2003, the IWH joined the College of Health Sciences. The IWH serves as a research and education resource for TWU’s health professions programs on the Denton campus. The IWH has also forged partnerships that link a variety of academic institutions, community-based organizations, and government agencies united by the common goal of advancing the health and wellbeing of women and girls in Texas.


The Institute for Women's Health at Texas Woman's University is one of the foremost comprehensive authorities on the health and well-being of women in all stages of their lives.


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