HHS announced the creation of six national centers of excellence in women's healthcare to serve as "one-stop shopping" models for women's health services. HHS is providing $1 million for the centers, some of which will focus on women's health issues in rural areas. The centers are at Brown University, Providence, R.I.; Oregon Health & Science University, Portland; University of Arizona, Tucson; University of Minnesota, Minneapolis; University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson; and Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond. The centers will concentrate on preventive healthcare, recruitment and retention of women in medical careers, and coordination of clinical services between academic centers and surrounding communities. -- by Tony Fong
