We don't just work here, we're raising our families here, caring for loved ones, going to school and volunteering & getting involved with organizations that impact the health and well-being of women across our community and our great state. As community leaders, our obstetrician–gynecologists inspire others to be involved in supporting worthy causes and to truly make a positive difference in our community, our state, and internationally.
Minnesota State Fair
Each year, experts from the University of Minnesota Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women's Health volunteer at the Minnesota State Fair to highlight cancer prevention and women's health and pregnancy care. This opportunity is great for the community to learn more about women's health and ask important questions in an informal environment. Faculty members host displays during Cancer Prevention Day and during Women's Health Day while highlighting the doctors, nurses and research staff who are defining the standard of care for all women.
Faculty members in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health formed the Wheelin For Women peloton to support women's health. Chainbreaker is an annual grassroots bike tour that raises money for cancer research at the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center. With 100% of the money raised going directly to groundbreaking cancer research, the inaugural ride in 2017 raised over $1.3 million.
