SEX and Gender SPecific Health  C. About US

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) has been dedicated to education, patient care, and research, which has made an impact on the health of West Texas and beyond for almost 40 years. To date, we have trained more than 10,000 health care professionals, and we meet the health care needs of more than 2.5 million people who live throughout a vast 108-counties stretching from the Texas Panhandle south to the Permian Basin and west into Eastern New Mexico. We have established ourselves as a leader in education and patient care and are building a top-ranked research environment with significant studies under way in areas such as aging, cancer, reproduction, genetic diseases, and rural health. In addition, our location, adjacent to Texas Tech University, provides a unique opportunity for advancement of knowledge through scientific collaborations.

Laura W. Bush Institute for Women's Health (LWBIWH) was established within the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in August 2007, and thus began the effort to establish a multi-campus, women's health institute in Amarillo, El Paso, Lubbock, San Angelo, and the Permian Basin. Modern day research demonstrates that some diseases react differently in men and women, which challenges health care professionals to design special approaches to providing women's health information, disease diagnosis, and treatment. The LWBIWH is committed to developing an institution-wide infrastructure to benefit women's health, which is a global issue spanning disciplines, communities, gender, and ethnicity.

The SGSH Task Force was appointed by President Mitchell to act as an institutional-level, multidisciplinary group comprised of faculty representing each TTUHSC School.  This group works closely with the SGSH Curriculum Program, the main purpose of which is the creation of SGSH educational materials and innovative educational models for use within TTUHSC and disseminated nationally. This Task Force also serves as a think tank for future initiatives in sex and gender-based medicine, including collaboration with our TTU colleagues.
