“Women’s Health Issues” takes significance as September’s Journal of the Month

wmnshlthlgThe American Medical Association has been celebrating Women in Medicine every September for more than 30 years. This year’s theme is “Women in Medicine: Empowering Leaders to Improve the Health of Women” (AMWA). In following this theme, our journal of the month is Women’s Health Issues (WHI). WHI is published bimonthly and is the official journal of the Jacobs Institute of Women’s Health. It is dedicated to improving the health and health care of all women. WHI publishes peer-reviewed research and manuscripts pertaining to women’s health care and policies affecting women’s health care.

The current issue September-October 2013 contains an article by Laura Dodge, Sadia Haider, and Michele Hacker about health care providers and their knowledge of state-level abortion laws and an original research paper by Sarah Tom and Abbey Berenson entitled “Associations Between Poor Sleep quality and Psychosocial Stress with Obesity in Reproductive-age Women of Lower Socioeconomic Status.”

Women’s Health Issues is available electronically through the GRU Libraries’ Electronic Journals List. For more information about this journal or any other in our collection, contact Melissa Johnson, Electronic Resources and Serials Librarian, at mjohns69@gru.edu or 706-667-4907
