The Honors College is excited to announce the launch of Honors Research Ready-IWH, an undergraduate research partnership with the VCU Institute of Women’s Health. Not surprisingly, women’s health intersects with many areas of research, including nutrition, medical diagnosis and treatment, intimate partner violence, and health disparities across socio-economic status, race, and gender identity. Therefore, the opportunities for undergraduates in all majors to engage with IWH faculty are enormous, and the Honors College is proud to make this opportunity available to its students!
Selected students must enroll in the Honors Research Ready module (1.5 credits). The application deadline is February 1, 2021.
