Illinois Women's Health Registry Opens at Northwestern University
Illinois Women's Health Registry
The Illinois Women's Health Registry is now available to all female Illinois residents over the age of 18!
The Institute for Women's Health Research at Northwestern University has developed the Registry to improve our understanding of women's health status in Illinois by tracking general trends over time and to identify a pool of women who are interested in participating in important research to advance women's health.
The Registry is a confidential questionnaire that contains questions regarding a woman's environment, her health-related behaviors, her health symptoms, and any illnesses or conditions she may have now or has had in the past. All information will be stored on a secured server with SSL encryption-the same level of security used for banking and healthcare sites. We hope that you will encourage your female relatives, friends and colleagues to participate in this new initiative.
If we are truly committed to improving our knowledge about women's health for ourselves, our spouses, our daughters, our granddaughters and future generations, then tools like this Registry are critical to assist researchers find the answers.
