The Foundation for Women’s Wellness (FWW) is a 501c3 nonprofit public charity dedicated to improving women’s health by raising support for innovative early-stage research and education. Our focus is straight forward — keep FWW’s infrastructure minimal and optimize giving to go directly to research and fellowship awards.
FWW Research Awards focus on start-up funding for small, short-term studies with great promise for advancing women’s health. We primarily target leading women’s health concerns such as cardiovascular disease, top female cancers and hormones’ role in disease and stage-of-life health concerns such as pregnancy and menopause. This start-up funding is crucial for moving women’s health forward and yet is scarce in medical funding today. Our selection process guided by our Medical Advisory Board emphasizes the promise of both the research and investigator to positively impact women’s health.
FWW also believes it is essential to invest in the future. FWW Fellowship Awards support emergent physician-scientist dedicated to women’s health research.
FWW does not endorse any specific product, brand, medical protocol, website, publication or the like. Founded in 1997 by an internationally renowned physician in women’s health & hormones, FWW is committed to supporting and disseminating scientifically sound and balanced research and analysis.
