Gender Bias in Medicine: Lazy Science and Bad Medicine

November 5th Renaissance Dallas Addison Hotel
Dallas TX
This is a powerful discussion of how our current medical system ignores women. The system believes women are done with life at the age of 52. There is a built-in gender-bias that has shaped the health care system and educated generations of physicians. You will learn how for generations women were kept out of medical studies, how men were used in primary studies for uterine cancer, how women were left out of long-term studies on aging, and how the medical system chooses bandaids over prevention in the management of aging women. This discussion will teach you how to recognize gender bias in medicine and begin to be the solution for decreasing the rate of the top 5 killers of women. You will learn how to transition from this built-in gender bias in the post graduate medical education system to evidence-based, gender-focused care of your female patient.
