EVENT:  Texas Tech University System and TTUHSC officials are hosting a private luncheon for the LWBIWH featuring former first lady Laura W. Bush. The luncheon is to increase support for the LWBIWH and raise awareness for critical issues relating to women’s health.

LWBIWH research and programs continue to show dynamic and cutting-edge information related to the care of women not previously emphasized. Recent studies on gender differences in disease and treatment have uncovered a need for the integration of gender-specific medicine into the national medical school curriculum in addition to the ongoing research and outreach.

Chancellor Kent Hance, President Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D. and Bush will make remarks at the luncheon, but will not be available for one-on-one interviews.
