Hadassah Minneapolis and St. Paul present Gender Equity in Medicine, featuring Dr. Virginia Miller, MBA, PhD, Professor, Surgery and Physiology, Director, Women's Health Research Center, Mayo Clinic and a leader in this field.

Sunday, Oct. 15, 10 am

Beth El Synagogue

Learn about gender equity in medicine, which is critical to our health, and to hear about what we can do to make important changes.

Why is gender equity in medicine important?

- Importance of inclusion of female subjects in medical research

- Why women and men may have different symptoms for the same ilnesses

- Drugs may vary as to how they affect women vs men

- Questions to ask your doctor may vary by gender

A multitude of diseases are often misdiagnosed or overlooked entirely in women because medical research, diagnostic tools and treatments are frequently based on male physiology. Even animal and cellular research subjects are overwhelmingly more male than female.

Hadassah is a leader in research, care and advocacy for Gender Equity in Medicine. Watch for registration for this event to open soon.
