    • Educate patients and the community overall about women's health through educational and community outreach programs.
    • Expand medical research opportunities for women that encourage advancements in the field of women's health through our Kentucky Women's Health Research Registry and clinical trials.

  • Kentucky Women's Health Registry

    We are dedicated to expanding opportunities for Kentucky women to participate in medical research. As more women participate in medical studies, researchers are discovering that women may have very different reactions than men to the same drugs and treatments. The Center's goal is for all Kentucky women to fill out the Kentucky Women's Health Registry survey and consider volunteering for medical studies that will help us advance medical knowledge about women's health.

Experts do not know the exact causes of breast cancer but research has shown certain factors increase a woman's chances of getting breast cancer. Although some women are at higher risk, the fact is all women are at risk for breast cancer. Learn more by participating in our Breast Cancer Risk Factors Multimedia Interactive Program.
