Why Join

Wellness
Health

The perspectives and needs of women should be routinely considered in public health efforts to improve the overall health of every person and eliminate health disparities.

 

Our Story

In 2006 we created a statewide registry to investigate issues in women’s health. The study was initiated by the University of Kentucky’s Center for the Advancement of Women’s Health to improve the understanding of diseases or illnesses affecting women in Kentucky. With the success of the Kentucky Women’s Health Registry (KWHR), we decided to expand the registry nationwide.

 

A decade after our initial launch, we renamed KWHR to be more inclusive of women across the United States, hence Wellness, Health & You (WHY). We created WHY to help meet the growing needs of both the science community and those who identify as women. 

 

In keeping with our original goal of understanding women's health and representing women in science, WHY conducts a yearly survey of self-reported symptoms, health behaviors, prevention practices, and access to care. Following this baseline survey, we offer members additional surveys depending on their answers to the initial survey. We then partner with scientists and investigators to help ensure our member's (confidential and secure) data can be used to understand all aspects of women's health.
