The Biden Administration recently signed an executive order aimed at improving women’s healthcare in the Tampa Bay area by providing more funding for research. This move is a significant step towards addressing the underfunding and under-research of women’s health, which has led to gaps in knowledge and treatment options.

According to Dr. Megan Tyrone, Chief Medical Officer at St. Joseph’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital, the $12 billion in federal funding will have a tremendous impact on women’s health, not just within specialized facilities but in medicine overall. Dr. Daniela Crousillat, Director of the Women’s Heart Program at the University of South Florida and Tampa General Hospital, highlights the underrepresentation of women in clinical trials, particularly in cardiology research.

The lack of inclusion in studies has led to incomplete treatment options for many women despite heart disease being the leading cause of death among them. Both doctors believe that this new funding will enable researchers to delve deeper into understanding how diseases affect women and ultimately lead to better prevention, diagnosis, and treatment options.

Although progress takes time in the realm of research, the doctors are hopeful that with this increased funding there will be significant advancements in women’s health in the years to come. The focus on studying various diseases that disproportionately affect women will likely lead to more tailored approaches to healthcare for them in the future.
