Women Who Rock connects through the power of music and helps educate, support and fund women-centric health research. The annual Women Who Rock Benefit Concert in October features some of the brightest stars in music today with a 100% female-fronted line-up. All donations to Women Who Rock support the Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI)–the nation’s largest research institute dedicated solely to life-saving women’s health research. Stay tuned for announcement re the October 2021 Women Who Rock Benefit Concert.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Women’s health overall is underfunded and understudied. While most health research has sidestepped sex differences, Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) is the nation’s largest research institute dedicated solely to women’s health research. In addition, MWRI currently offers 192 studies enrolling 162,000 women in clinical trials all over the world. Researchers at MWRI are working on chemotherapy resistance for the most common form of breast cancer, finding a more effective treatment for triple negative breast cancer, and running more than 20 clinical trials to develop new, personalized treatments for women.
