Vision & Mission

The Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center is active in communities across Texas empowering women through health symposiums that enlighten and inspire them to expect nothing less than personalized medicine because differences matter.

Our Vision:
To maintain a national position as leaders in women’s health and gender-based medicine throughout Texas and the nation, while remaining committed to enriching the lives of women and girls in our communities.

Our Mission:
The Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health is dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls in Texas and across the nation by advancing multidisciplinary science in women’s health. Recognizing that differences matter, we promote health, individually inspired, through scientific investigation, translation of science into practice, and providing outreach that impacts the community for today and tomorrow.

Scientific Investigation: we’ve devoted more than $2 million to ground-breaking research unique to women’s health because differences matter.

Translating Science to Practice: we’ve produced original curriculum and continuing medical education modules to bring more personalized medicine to every patient.

Community Impact: we’ve inspired more than 25,000 women and girls to see themselves as smart, valuable, and powerful people, motivating them to take control of their lives and health.
This work is made possible by the generosity of women and men who want to make our nation a healthier, safer place where everyone can achieve their full potential.
