Prof. Marek Glezerman talks about the widely overlooked gender and sex related bias in medicine and how it especially fails women.
Although body organs of men and women may function in a different manner, most research still focuses on men, with virtually no adjustments to female patients. For women such a unisex approach may have dire consequences, and life threating potential.
Supported by solid scientific research, Prof. Glezerman, a world- acclaimed pioneer and authority of Gender and Sex Conscious Medicine offers jaw dropping insights, some of which may actually save lives!
Certainly, worth listening to and applying immediately.
