2019-2020 Seminar Series Sex Differences in Health and Disease

Join us for Whitehead Institute’s 2019-2020 Seminar Series for High School Teachers, Sex Differences in Health and Disease, as researchers explore how biological sex differences affect the underlying causes of disease, leading to widespread implications for both medical research and treatment

When registering for the program, teachers make the commitment to miss no more than three sessions of the series. Naturally we understand that there will occasionally be conflicts. When you will be unable to attend a session, it is very important to let us know in advance so we can plan for an accurate attendance. We rely on your input when planning dinner, and your Whitehead Partner counts on you being at the session unless he or she hears otherwise. For more information about Whitehead Institute's education and community outreach offerings, please contact Amy Tremblay at
