2024 Society for Women’s Health Research Gala

What an incredible honor it was to be presented with the SWHR Women’s Health Visionary Award by the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy! I’m proud to live in a time when women’s research is suddenly front-page news, and I look forward to continuing my advocacy in this space for many years to come.

Cleveland Clinic’s New Women’s Comprehensive Health and Research Center is Officially Open

I’m honored to serve as chief visionary and strategic advisor for this initiative dedicated to helping women during midlife and beyond thrive and easily receive specialized medical care. This is a place where women will feel seen, will get the research they need, and the treatment they deserve from Cleveland Clinic’s talented and passionate doctors, from their brains to their bones. It’s incredible to witness the WAM Prevention and Research Center expand, as it deserves to!

The Chair and the Valley: A Memoir of Trauma, Healing, and the Outdoors by Banning Lyon is a raw, gut-wrenching, and amazing story about healing from trauma and starting over. It is a testament to the importance of chosen family, the restorative power of nature, and the strength it takes to build a new life in the face of fear and doubt.

Try MOSH… A Protein Bar for Your Brain

I created MOSH with my son, Patrick, with a simple mission: we exist to create a conversation about brain health through food, education, research, and providing tools for a “mindstyle” lifestyle.
