Special to The Advocate


State Senator Sal DiDomenico joined First Lady Dr. Jill Biden for a Biden-Harris administration announcement of a $100 million investment in women’s health research. This “Sprint for Women’s Health” program is the first deliverable from the White House’s new initiative on women’s health research. This program will be led by the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H), which is located in Cambridge. This event also featured U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley and Maria Shriver.

“I want to thank the Biden-Harris administration and our state’s federal delegation for bringing this fantastic program to our state that will accelerate research on heart and brain conditions, as well as chronic diseases, which disproportionately impact women,” said DiDomenico, who is the Assistant Majority Leader of the Massachusetts Senate. “Women’s health is far too often brushed aside, not taken seriously, and in many cases, not prioritized by the medical field. This initiative is essential to improving how we care for women in this country, and I couldn’t be prouder that researchers in my district and throughout our state will be leading the way.”

With this funding, ARPA-H will bring together researchers, clinicians, tech experts and others to spur innovative ideas and private sector collaboration in order to improve women’s health.
