- Women's Health Resource Guide 2009
The Office of Women's Health (OWH) works to eliminate health status disparities for Rhode Island women. This is achieved by promoting a gender-informed, coordinated, comprehensive, prevention focused approach to women's health across the lifespan. The OWH helps to coordinate internal and external efforts to use policy change to improve the health of women, increase public awareness of issues impacting the health of women, and to promote healthy behaviors and environments in partnership with other programs and organizations.
We sponsor three to five Rhode Island teenagers each year to pursue independent research projects related to women’s health, and to represent teenagers on the Women’s Health Advisory Committee.
