UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 1 1. INTRODUCTION Throughout much of history, the majority of medical research and thinking has been based on the human male. Anatomy and physiology have focused the obvious differences in reproductive and lactating structures, but evolving technologies are increasingly ena bling us to detect biochemical and other small differences. Over the past decade, researchers and clinicians have begun publishing their research and clinical experiences with differing symptom presentation, reaction to therapy and prognoses, even within t he same non reproductive disease between the sexes. Endocrinology, cardiology, neurology, psychology and orthopedics have noted such differences. University of F lorida (UF) faculty have bee n among those publishing on sex and gender differences, making t he UF Health Science Center a natural venue for growing new researchers. With 16 colleges, more than 150 research centers and institutes, over 4 ,000 faculty members, and more than 50,000 students UF offers a n important nexus for the investigation and ap plication of information on sex and gender specific medicine. A broad PubMed search found UF researchers had published nearly 600 articles on gender related issues in physical and mental health between 1987 and October 2012, with author s distributed throu ghout all six colleges of the Health Science Center, the College of Health and Human Performance, the College of Engineering, and the Psychology and Biology Departments in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The Health Science Center Libraries (HSCL ), part of the George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida (Smathers Libraries), are active partners in the education, research, training, and clinical needs of the Health Science Center colleges, centers, and institutes. With a strong liaison librarian program in place since 1998 (Tennant et al, 2001), the HSCL integrate s information skills and resources instruction into curricula across the Health Science Center provides support to basic sciences and clinical researchers through both document access and expert searching services, and strives to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations by connecting researchers with one another. it will be most effective in reaching out to UF f goal areas: Increasing sex differences research in basic sciences Employ ing innovative strategies to build a well th research workforce In order to achieve these goals, HSCL librarians will undertake a 7 part outreach effort, focusing primarily on awareness building and skills development on the part of UF students and faculty in the basic sc iences and health profess ions, and secondarily on increasing and sex and gender differences research. HSCL librarians will also explore other opportunities to present, train, and facilitate collaboration during the grant period. 1. Student training Librarians will partner with faculty from the College s of Liberal Arts and Sciences Medicine and Public Health and Health Professions to train students in the use of the Women Resources Portal while introducing them to the importance of sex and gender differences in research and healthcare. It is expected that introducing students to these concepts and resources early in their careers will lead all to be aware of the importance of sex differences across areas of research and patient care, and

PAGE 5

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 2 differences research Several teaching efforts will focus on basic science students including undergraduate genetics students, Genetics and Genomics PhD students, and Interdisciplinary PhD in Biomedical Sciences (ID P) students. Other teaching efforts will focus on future clin icians and clinical researchers including undergraduate students minoring in health disparities in society, undergraduate students in the Rural and Urban Underserved Medicine (RUUM) program, and first and second year medical students. 2. Faculty training and professional development p resentations at various venues. It is expected that introducing early career faculty to these resources will raise awareness of the importance of sex differences across research and patient care and may influence their choices of research focus. Presenta tion venues include the two week course Introduction to Clinical and Translational Research, a professional development seminar series, and local conferences and research symposia. 3. Collection building The HSCL will collaborate with the partners described above as well as the librarian subject for possible purchase collection that would significant ly improve access to dif ferences literature Such items may include books, journal back files, videos, and/or data sets. It is expected that and sex and gender differences will enhance the research and teaching of t hose faculty already working in these areas and will make such research and teaching more feasible for others considering working in these areas. 4. Open access publishing The HSCL will o ffer funds to UF authors publishing in open access journals or open access articles in traditional journals differences. Fund distribution and administration will be c oordinate d with Smathers Libraries personnel who have been administering an Open Access Publishin g Fund for over two years with funds designated to cover open access publishing fees. It is expected that such funding will encourage publica tion in open access venues and will thus facilitate the dissemination of gender differ ence s rese arch results. 5. Facilitating collaboration Smathers Libraries personnel will lead two Collaborating with Strangers workshops using CoLAB (CoLAB) Planning Series facilitative processes researchers to others in related fields with whom they may be able to de velop meaningful connections and to encourage interdisciplinary c ollaboration. Graduate student assistants will aid in facilitating these workshops both in person and via a web presence that attendees will be able to use to connect with each other after the workshops It is expected that these workshops will lead to n gender differences.

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 4 Approach and Methodology : 1) Student training gender and sex differences research will be introduced withi n the curricula of a number of classes and academic programs. The Health Science Center Library has a longstanding partnership with the undergraduate general genetics course in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Each year in the spring semester, Tennant provides bibliographic and bioinformatics database instruction to approximately 120 students through this course; she is also responsible for developing, coordinating, implementing and grading the course term project (Tennant and Miyamoto, 2002; Te nnant et al, 2012). Generally over 90% of the students in the course are pre med, with the remainder expecting to attend graduate school in the biological sciences or other health related professions, such as dental or veterinary school. Through this class Tennant will provide students with an introduction to sex and gender Students will also be asked to include in their final term projects a short discussion of a ny sex and gender differences located in the biomedical literature related to their term project topics. In order to reach students who are beginning their graduate level research, in September of 2013, Tennant will integrate a discussion of sex/gender di fference research into her orientations for incoming PhD students in the College of Medicine (IDP students) and incoming PhD students in the Genetics and Genomics graduate program, an interdisciplinary program that includes students from the Colleges of Li beral Arts and Sciences, Agriculture and Life Sciences, and Medicine. To reach pre health undergraduate students with more of a clinical focus, Butson, Edwards, and Norton will work with Nancy Hardt, MD of the College of Medicine and Laura Guyer, PhD of t he in two undergraduate courses: Introduction to Health Disparities and Current Issues in Medicine. Introduction to Health Disparities is a required course in the undergraduate minor in health Introduction to the concepts surrounding sex and gender differences research will be particularly relevant for students in this about health disparities (including gender disparities) and develop critical thinking about assumptions shaping medical research and clinical practice. Current Issues in Medicine is a required course for students in the Rural and Urban Underserved Medicine (RUUM) program. The RUUM program offers qualified undergraduate students interested in rural or urban medicine and in practicing medicine to underserved populations the opportunity for early acceptance into medical school and requires dedicated coursework in their senior year. HSCL librarians will also serve as To reach medical students, the HSCL project team will work with Rebecca R. Pauly, MD of the College of Medicine to introduce the concept of the differences in disease presentation across genders in the course Essentials of Patient Care 4, which will occur in Spring Semester 2013. In this course, 130 second year medical students are taught skills in interacting with patients during lectures and provided an opportunity to demonstrate those skills in videotaped sessions with

PAGE 8

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 5 simulated patients in the Harrell Professional Development and Assessment Center. Videotapes of the patient interactions are reviewed by preceptors and in small groups of medical students where concepts and skills are further discussed. Butson, Edwards, and Norton will participate in a session focused on delivering bad news to patients presenting session highlight gender differences in delivering and hearing bad news and differences in the presentation an will be apprised of the gender differences which may be noted during the review. The HSCL project team sources Portal to first year medical students who have selected Local and Global Health Equity as their discovery pathway. Discovery pathways allow medical students to focus on a thematic area of research interest which they will address throughout their u ndergraduate medical education, culminating in a paper, presentation, or other substantive deliverable. Butson, Edwards, and Norton will present at one session of the weekly seminar series for Local and Global Health Equity, introducing students to the po rtal and other resources; students will then be asked to choose a topic covered in the portal and make a brief presentation on it. In addition to the courses identified above, the HSCL project will continue to work with faculty collaborators in the Acade mic Health Center and College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to find other programs or courses that would benefit from instruction on sex and gender differences research and 2) Faculty training and profess ional development be introduced to faculty through coursework, professional development, conferences, and symposia. The HSCL project team will work with Ronald Shorr, MD to integrate information about sex and gender differences research into the course Introduction to Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR). This two week summer course, offered through the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is designed for graduate students and early career facult y who are learning about research design and analysis and typically enrolls around 50 students. The HSCL librarians have personnel will work with the librarian who typically provides instruction in this course to integrate he theme for small group sessions, which require to participants to develop a detailed research proposal on a topic of interest within the overall theme. Project personnel will serve as small group leaders and continue to guide course participants to appr opriate resources on sex and gender differences research in that venue. The HSCL project team will work with Marian Limacher, MD, Senior Associate Dean of the College of and sex and gender differences research into professional development opportunities for faculty in the College of Medicine. Butson, Norton, and Edwards will provide support for a professional development

They will also assist in teaching medical residents and fellows in the CTSI Training and Professional Development Program to identify study design and analysis appropriate for applying research conclusions to female s ubjects within the biomedical literature. Promote Health and Eliminate Health Disparities. This conference, taking place in June 2013, is designed to provi de a forum for communication between health professionals and the communities gender differences research at the conference; both librarians are members of plann ing committees organizing the conference. All project team members will present at college and institute based research days throughout the year, including but not limited to the Emerging Pathogens Institute Research Day, Public Health and Health Profess ions Research Day, and Florida Genetics 2013. 3) Collection building Because research builds on what is currently known, the HSCL project team proposes acquiring access for current investigators and students to documents on the methods used and results obtained in previous research. Schaefer will identify appropriate documents for one time purchase including relevant books, journal backfiles, vid eos, electronic products such as software and data mean that these purchases have the potential to reach many researchers in the state of Florida and/or in the S outheast Atlantic region. Examples of resources under consideration for purchase include but are not limited to: Backfiles of the journal Gender Medicine Books: Sex and Gender Aspects in Clinical Medicine ; Coronary Disease in Women ; Designing and Conducti ng Gender, Sex, and Health Research; The Palgrave Handbook of Gender and Healthcare ; Sex Differences and Implications for Translational Neuroscience Research: Workshop Summary and Male ; and Female Infertility: Genetic Causes, Hormonal Treatments and Health Effects Videos: The Gender Puzzle Theories of Gender Role Differences: The Biological Difference, Taking 4) Open access publishing research for interested parties beyond Florida and the Southeast, the HSCL project team have distributed funding to cover p ublication costs of articles accepted in open access journals or for articles that w ill be made open access in traditional journals. This existing Open Access Publishing Fund offers up to $3,000 per UF author in open access publishing fees and has distribu ted over $200,000 for 190 articles. Schaefer will collaborate with personnel who have drafted these policies project team will use the same overall eligibility criteria in distributing funds, with some modification to ensure the funding goes only to articles aligned with the subject matter of this project. For those articles under consideration for funding by this project, Schaefer will be involved in the selection process

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 7 5) Facilitating collaboration As a means for initiating collaborative relationships and projects among UF faculty and students, CoLAB Planning Series facilitation processes will convene participants of various disciplines on campus. Two workshops facilita will be thematically designed to target those faculty and students researching or teaching topics related to sex and gender diversity in medical research. Each workshop will be two hours in length. After an introduction to the theories of collaborative and creative processes, and overview of the project scope, participants will share individual profiles to spark one on one conversations of 3 to 4 lts in highly focused conversations, often revealing hidden assets and commonalities of research, project and/or academic goals. Rather than focusing on what students, faculty and researchers lack in terms of support, this CoLAB process reveals access to e xtant resources, capacities, and networks. individual ideas and thoughts on such questions as: What synergies or connections did you discover? What events, in What other things do you want to learn or know? What are your next steps? An online webpage featuring headshots, profiles and contact information will provide a means for lea rning about 6) Information dissemination through resources guides Resources Portal, links to the portal will be displayed on the HSCL website and appropriate subject specific resources guides (LibGuides). LibGuides, a product of Springshare, can be used to integrate resources in defined subject areas useful for students and faculty researchers. The HSCL project team will devel op a LibGuide to that focuses on support of sex and gender differences research. HSCL librarians will work with the subject specialists from the Smathers Libraries to include the e the faculty who 7) Sharing project results through professional associations Tennant, Edwards, Norton, and Schaefer will promote the outreach activities of this project to colleagues outside of t he University of Florida via presentations at professional association conferences. Tennant will share preliminary project results at the Special Libraries Association (SLA) annual meeting in June; Edwards and Norton will share results at the Southern Cha pter of the Medical Library Association (SC/MLA) annual meeting in October, and Schaefer will share results at the American Public Health Association annual meeting in November. Description of Organizations Participating in the Project : many different colleges and departments. All of the work of this outreach project will occur with partners within the University of Florida. The HSCL well d eveloped library liaison program has forged many relationships with partners in the Academic Health Center. This outreach project is designed to continue collaborations with existing partners and to build new relationships and partners across the universi ty. In order to increase basic science research in sex and gender differences and help develop

College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: Department of Biology. Tennant has been an instructor in genetics students have presented their poster sessions on genetic disease manifestations in the HSCL for the last five years. College of Medicine: Interdisciplinary Program (IDP) in Biomedical Sciences. The IDP program confers doctoral degrees in six concentrations: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology; Genetics; Immunolo gy & Microbiology; Molecular Cell Biology; Neuroscience; and Physiology & Pharmacology. Tennant has been the liaison to this group since 1996 and regularly presents in their orientations. Genetics Institute: Genetics and Genomics Graduate Program. Tenna nt has served as liaison to the Genetics Institute since 2001 and has provided support for the Genetics and Genomics Graduate Program since its inception, regularly presenting in their orientations. College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: s Studies and Gender Research, Health Disparities in Society undergraduate minor. Hardt and Guyer have been the es and Gender Research. HSCL librarians ha ve worked with Hardt on several projects regarding serving the rural and underserved populations. Hardt has developed a mobile van clinic in which students from a variety of disciplines see patients who would othe rwise have difficulty accessing healthcare. HSCL librarians worked with Guyer in her former role of placing public health students in rotations facilitated by the University of Florida AHEC program; Guyer involved HSCL librarians as consultants, preparing students for the research components of those rotations. While working with familiar partners, involvement with the 50 students taking the health disparities in society undergraduate minor will be a new role for the HSCL. College of Medicine: Rural and Urban Underserved Medicine (RUUM) Track. Guyer coordinates this program that offers early medical school acceptance to exceptional undergraduate students with an interest in serving rural and urban underserved populations. HSCL librarians ha ve worked with Guyer as described above; collaborating to provide instruction in RUUM courses will be a new venture for the HSCL. College of Medicine: Medical student curriculum. Butson and Norton are current members of the College of Medicine Curriculum Committee, and other HSCL librarians have previously served in this capacity. The HSCL has been involved in various aspects of the medical curriculum for many years, most recently (Fall 2012) providing support for a newly developed week long intersession on health policy and outcomes. For the current project, HSCL librarians will work with Pauly and Hardt in portions of the first and second year curriculum in which the library has not previously been involved. Pauly and Butson have been co principal inve stigators on three Southeastern Atlantic Regional Medical Library Program of the National Library of Medicine in 2011 2012. Based on that project, Pauly and Butson secu red additional Gatorade funding for 2012 2013 to continue the project in which a librarian is embedded in the Internal Medicine clinic eight hours per week. The HSCL has previously worked with Hardt as described above. Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI): CTSI Training and Professional Development Program.

College of Medicine: Faculty Affairs and Professional Development. Working with Marian Limacher, Senior Associate Dea n for Faculty Affairs and Professional Development for the College of Medicine, will be a new relationship for the HSCL. Several HSC librarians have attended the professional development seminars which have been offered by her office and the CTSI Introduct ion to Clinical and Translation Research described above is conducted under her auspices. Evaluation : Evaluation Goals The goals of the evaluation are designed to provide support for, and a way to measure the success of, overall program goals. As such, the evaluation goals and questions will be directly tied to project goals and objectives. 1. lth and sex/gender differences 2. Instruction and training (objective 1,2, and 6 listed above) 3. Collection development (objective 3) 4. Information dissemination (objectives 4 and 7) 5. Facilitating collaboration/building partnerships (objective 5) Evaluation Desc ription & Methodology The evaluation was designed to align with the project goals and to meet the needs of the project orientated Sanders, and Worthen (2004). The following groups have been identified as entities with a direct interest in the project and its results. The most obvious and significant stakeholders are the funding agencies, the National Library of Medicine and the Off ice of to carry out the work for the project. Additional stakeholders include the project team and the partners at the University of Florida because proj ect success will not only reflect upon the project team, but L As with any evaluation, the audience for the evaluation report consists primarily of the stake holders and this will be considered throughout the evaluation and reporting process. Other factors influencing the evaluation methodology include the abbreviated 9 month grant period, regulation barriers, and other time constraints. Therefore, evaluation feasibility is a concern and the evaluation described below will meet the evaluation goals while endeavoring to focus on what is feasible given the constraints mentioned above. The following table illustrates the various evaluation elements. The evaluat ion questions are tied to the project and evaluation goals. Information needed to answer the evaluation questions is described as well as the information source(s) and the method to collect the information. At this time no data collection instruments have been finalized, but that task will be finished as early into the grant period as possible.

Facilities The University of Florida is a large, land grant, public educational research institution with a faculty of approximately 4,000 and a student body of approximately 50,000. UF is Fl orida's largest university, the nation's fourth largest, and traces its beginnings to a small seminary in 1853. Since 1985, UF has been a member of the Association of American Universities, the prestigious higher education organization comprised of the top 62 public and private institutions in North America. UF is home to 16 colleges and more than 150 research centers and instit utes. The University offers PhDs in more than 90 fields and Master's degree s in more than 120 fields. The H ealth S cience C enter Libraries provide services and programs to support the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Public Health and Health Professions, and Veterinary Medicine; the McKnight Brain Institute; the University of Florida Genetics Institute; the Emerging Pathogens Institute; the Institute for Child and Health Policy; and the Institute of Aging; Shands HealthCare; the University of Florida/Shands Cancer Center; and the University of Florida Physicians Clinics (12 primary and 21 specialty care). Th e HSC Libraries also support 52% ($291,000,000) of all campus research awards by providing up to date research content and information access and management support. Since 1999, the HSC Libraries have operated a Liaison Librarian program to facilitate part nerships with academic faculty and programs by assigning each HSC college or department a dedicated librarian who works closely with its faculty, staff and student s. The HSCL currently employs 11 professional librarians and 20 staff. Presentations to stu dents and faculty are expected to occur either in classrooms and auditoriums on the campus of the University

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 15 have computers with Internet access and USB ports, projection system s and large projection screens or monitors as well as accommodation for participants with physical limitations. Many of these presentation spaces also have laser pointers and/or clip on microphones. The LibGuide and all electronic books and journals that are purchased with grant funding will be hosted on the library any service disruption. All video products purchased will be either streaming or in DVD for mat, the latter being the hard format for which UF classrooms or mobile carts are equipped. The first C oLAB workshop will be conducted in one of several large open spaces in either t he Health Science Center or a campus library. The second CoLAB workshop wi ll also occur in one of those spaces if the newly remodeled Health Science Center Library is not completed by its projected re opening date of April 2013. The purpose of the College of Medicine's Harrell Professional Development and Assessment Center is development of the techniques and tools necessary for successful patient evaluation and treatment. It contains a suite of 16 patient examination rooms that resemble outpatient clinic rooms. Each room is equipped with two closed circuit color video cameras and a microphone, which are linked to a control center in which student patient interactions can be monitored or videotaped. The Center uses standardized patients individuals trained to simulate signs and symptoms of specific ailments or who have stable, abnormal physical findings. e. Past Performance A broad PubMed search found UF researchers had published nearly 600 articles on gender related issues in physical and mental health between 1987 and October 2012, with author s distributed throughout all six colleges of the Health Science Center, the College of Health and Human Performance, the College of Engineering, and the Psychology and Biology Departments in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

The IDP in Biomedical Sciences confers the doctoral degree in Medical Sciences, with students receiving specialized training in six advanced interdepartmental graduate concentrations: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology; Genetic s; Immunology & Microbiology; Molecular Cell Biology; Neuroscience; and Physiology & Pharmacology. As these students are training to be research scientists in the basic biomedical sciences, this population is an excellent match for such instruction. As you have been the liaison librarian to IDP since the program began in 1996, y ou have an understanding of the information needs of these students. There is a variety of potential venues in which we could integrate this information into the IDP curriculum in the fall semester of 2013, for example, during your yearly orientations to incoming students, through an elective journal club, a new elective course, or as a module in our ethics in re search course. I support this partnership between the Health Science Center Library and the IDP in Biomedical Science graduate program. We can meet early in t he new year to finalize our plans. Sincerely, Paul A. Gulig, Ph.D. Professor and Associate Dean

I am intrigued by the opportunities this project provides and will gladly partner with you to integrate your instruction into the EPC curriculum as the students develop advanced communication skills in delivering bad news to standardized patients. We will discuss gender differences in delivering and hearing bad news as well as gender differences in the presentation and diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. By introducing medical students to the need for more research on gender/sex related health topics and the resources available via the Women’s Health Resources Portal they will be able to consider these issues as they enter into patient care and utilize this research for providing evidence based medicine. I look forward to partnering with you on this project. Please let me know if you need further information or assistance. Most sincerely, Rebecca Rainer Pauly, MD, FACP Professor of Medicine Associate Vice President, Health Affairs, Equity & Diversity Associate Chair, Department of Medicine for Medical Student Education Course Director, Essentials of Patient Care

Tennant, PhD, MLIS University of Florida Health Science Center Libraries PO Box 100206 Gainesville, FL 32610 0206 Dear Michele, I am delighted to support the University of Florida h ealth Science Center Libraries proposal for funding for the promotion of the Womens Health Information Portal. As you know, I am the Course Director for I ntrod uction to Clinical Research (ITC R) a two week summer intensive that enrolls approximately 50 students representing multiple disciplines who are beginning translational research careers. The li brary group participates annually as lecturers and coleaders of small group sessions. ITC R is an ideal venue to promote and role model the use of the Portal First, I would propose that the Portal is introduced in this year s library lecture : Has it already been done ? U sing library resou rces so you don t reinvent the wheel Second gender differences can be the overarching theme for our small group sessions. This will reinforce the use of the Portal as the students assemble their mock grant proposals. In future years we can modify the exposure to the Portal in ITCR as you see fit. I look forward to partnering with you on this project and please let me know if you need further information or assistance. Sincerely, Ronald I. Shorr, M.
