The extraordinary commitment of WIHS participants makes it possible to learn more about the physical, emotional and social health of HIV positive women in the United States. For over 20 years, WIHS women have dedicated their time and energy for the improvement of science in order to better the lives of women everywhere.
The Chicago consortium is one of the original six national WIHS study sites, led by Drs. Mardge Cohen and Audrey French (Co-Principal Investigators) and Kathleen Weber (Project Director and Co-Investigator). In addition to the WIHS core study, the Chicago consortium supports a number of independent substudies working with investigators throughout Chicago.
