Dear AccessCircles Members, Welcome to Watch Hill! I am delighted to share this forum with you. The Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School is delighted to serve as a Premier Partner of AccessCircles Health and Wellness Forums and the Lead Scientific Research Partner of the AccessCircles WHAM! Collaborative for Women’s Health Research. As the Executive Director of the Connors Center, I am privileged to work closely with Carolee and Lynn. We share a bold vision for improving the health of women and a commitment to joining forces to accelerate scientific discovery for the benefit of all women.

The Connors Center is a leading force in advancing women’s health, with a rich history and strong foundation of women’s health and sex differences discovery, clinical care, and advocacy for equity in women’s health. The Center’s primary activities focus on igniting change in women’s health by catalyzing research, bolstering knowledge, and transforming education for the next generation of physicians. Our signature initiative, the emerging First-in-Women Precision Medicine Platform, will educate and partner with the biopharma community, researchers and doctors to ensure that women are included and specifically studied in the development and testing of new drugs, digital health innovations, and devices. Women continue to be underrepresented in clinical trials and investigation of sex-differences remains poorly addressed in medical research, leading to worse health outcomes for women. The First-in-Women Platform will change that paradigm. Never has the need for this work been more urgent.

We are grateful to the WHAM! Collaborative and its many supporters for directing an inaugural WHAM! Investigator’s Award to the Connors Center to support Brigham Cardiologist Dr. Michelle O’Donoghue. At this meeting Dr. O’Donoghue will share more with you about her groundbreaking research study, “Identification of Novel Pathways that Contribute to Heart Disease in Women”, which will advance with resources provide by the WHAM! Investigator’s Fund. This 3-year study will investigate sex differences in symptoms of and treatments for cardiac disease, increasing the potential for improved cardiac care for women.

Please enjoy the enclosed newsletter highlighting the Center’s recent accomplishments and major events. Please make sure to save the date for our next luncheon in Boston on May 8, 2020. We hope you can join us to learn more about the health of women.

I look forward to our continued conversations at the AccessCircles retreats and beyond.

Sincerely,

Dear Friends,

As the Chairman, The Americas, of Ponant, I am delighted to welcome you to this year’s AccessCircles Health and Wellness Forum.  We are pleased to support this Forum where wisdom and knowledge are shared on topics that help shape our lives.  

Taking time to slow down at sea is a wonderful way to reinvigorate and refresh ourselves.  I invite you to join us on a luxury cruise aboard one of the Ponant ships for an exclusive and different experience of sea travel. Combining exceptional itineraries and 5-star hotel services, our French-style cruises offer luxurious ships that have been calling in mythical ports and little-known anchorages only accessible to smaller ships.  We have designed unique itineraries that will transport you to new destinations and new experiences all around the world: mooring in the heart of Mediterranean hidden bays, sailing between the majestic glaciers of Antarctica, an expedition to the remote lands of Alaska, or island hopping in the Caribbean.

Enjoy a 360­° immersive experience of places on the far side of the world, as if you were actually there.

I am delighted to be part of the AccessCircles Community!  I hope to personally meet you and look forward to spending the next few days with you.

Sincerely,
