Panel Description

Join us as we discuss and highlight minority women and young investigators working in health science and evidence synthesis with Cochrane US. Hear about their career paths, who has inspired them, and what advice they have for other women interested in or working in health evidence synthesis. Learn about Cochrane’s role in evidence Synthesis and how anyone can get involved.

Who is Anne Anderson?

Anne Anderson was a contributor to the thinking and effort that gave birth to evidence-based health care. A clinically qualified reproductive physiologist, Anne had an active interest in women’s health, co-editing the first edition of Women’s Problems in General Practice and contributed to Effectiveness and Satisfaction in Antenatal Care (1982). Iain Chalmers, Murray Enkin and Marc Keirse went on to publish Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth (ECPC) in 1989, dedicating the book to Anne. Each year Cochrane awards the Anne Anderson Award to a woman who has made significant contributions to evidence synthesis within the Cochrane organization.
