As part of the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) Women’s Health Resources Dissemination Outreach Project, this collection showcases publications authored by UMMS researchers who specialize in women’s health. A “gallery” of faculty web pages of women’s health researchers at UMMS is also included. This collection and gallery complement the Women’s Health Outreach Guide and have been created in partnership with the UMMS Women’s Faculty Committee and the UMMS Women’s Leadership Working Group. This project is funded in part by the National Institutes of Health, National Library of Medicine under Award Number LLC/HHSN3162012000028W, ICF International, Inc.
