WISEWOMAN Journal Articles

The June 2004 issue of the Journal of Women's Health features 17 research articles about CDC's WISEWOMAN program. The overall goal of these articles is to review current WISEWOMAN demonstration programs and to select the best practices that can be useful to other programs and future WISEWOMAN sites. Authors examine a wide range of topics, such as issues in health disparities research, how to conduct local program evaluation, and specific programmatic strategies that boost success in a underserved population.
