our mission.

The Cornell University Women's Health Initiative (WHI) was established in 2018 with the goal of educating members of Cornell campus and local community in matters of Women's Health. Through community service projects, fundraiser events, and product drives, we aim to raise awareness and aid for women afflicted by health crises within and beyond our immediate community.
