The Iris Cantor-UCLA Women's Health Education & Research Center (WHERC) provides education on physical, psychological, and social issues that impact the health and well-being of women and girls.
A significant aspect of the Center's work is its outreach to underserved girls and women, with a strong focus on prevention. Our wide-ranging outreach program combines projects that educate and empower, while fostering partnerships with well established and grass roots entities and government organizations.
The WHERC provides the community outreach and consumer education components for the UCLA Center of Excellence in Women's Health. Through its ability to integrate education, outreach, faculty expertise and research, the WHERC brings together resources of the UCLA Center of Excellence in Women's Health to serve our community.
