RED BANK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#health–HealthyWomen (www.healthywomen.org),
the nation’s leading independent health information source for women,
has appointed Phyllis Greenberger, MSW, as Senior Vice President for
Science and Health Policy. A pioneer in advancing women’s health
research, Ms. Greenberger will support HealthyWomen in its newly
expanded focus to advance policies that will improve the health of women
and women serving as health care decision makers.


As president and CEO of the Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR)
from 1993 until August 2016, Ms. Greenberger established the Washington,
D.C.-based SWHR and became a widely recognized thought leader in
advancing research on biological differences in disease and an advocate
for the understanding that health and disease may differ fundamentally
in women and men. For more than two decades, Ms. Greenberger has
dedicated her time to transforming women’s health through science,
advocacy and education. She is the recipient of the HHS Office of
Women’s Health 2016 Trailblazer award in recognition of her work.

“Today, we understand the critical roles that sex differences play in
health, wellness, treatment and disease progression,” said Ms.
Greenberger. “It is my pleasure to bring my experience to HealthyWomen,
an organization known for providing evidence-based health and wellness
information to women and their health care providers. I look forward to
supporting HealthyWomen as it embraces a new dimension to its mission.
This new focus to help women understand the science behind health
research will keep HealthyWomen at the forefront of education, advocacy
and policy-making.”

Ms. Greenberger will serve as HealthyWomen’s policy specialist in
Washington, D.C., raising awareness of issues on access, safety and
science and shaping the organization’s positions, in coordination with
HealthyWomen’s CEO. She will also oversee the establishment of a new
policy department as HealthyWomen builds out its policy focus and
science and evidence-based research platform.

“We are thrilled to welcome Phyllis as the newest member of the
HealthyWomen team,” said Beth Battaglino, HealthyWomen CEO. “With her
passion, expertise and extensive portfolio, she will give HealthyWomen a
new voice for addressing women’s unique health disparities across the
health care continuum and energize our outreach to new partners in
government, industry and advocacy.”
