Welcome to GEM!

The GEM Project is a program of the Institute for Women's Health and Leadership to improve health status of women and ethnic minorities. This is a multi-pronged approach through: education of healthcare providers and community members, research, and leadership.

The GEM Project was made possible by generous start-up funding from Carol Ammon and Endo Pharmaceuticals.  We also gratefully acknowledge further funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for 2006 – 2007.
