All participants in the Women's Health Initiative received newsletters throughout their participation in the study.  Issues of all newsletters, in English and Spanish can be found here.  There were two types of participant newsletters developed in WHI:

  • WHI Matters - This section contains a complete collection of the WHI Matters newsletter, the annual WHI participant newsletter.  Special issues from 2005 and 2006 that summarize WHI findings are also included. The newsletter features study updates, participant profiles, and health and other information of interest to women.  The first issue of this newsletter was mailed to participants in 1994!  WHI Matters continues to be sent to women currently enrolled in the WHI Extension Studies. 

  • WHIse Choices - Participants in the Dietary Change part of the Dietary Modification study received WHIse Choices newsletters from 1996-2010.
