Dr. Hadine Joffe will discuss the medical community’s shocking failure to conduct research and clinical trials that reflect the obvious fact that women are different from men. As a result, providers don’t know the role of gender for the vast majority of medical conditions and for their treatment. Filling this knowledge gap has the potential to transform health care delivery for women and for men.
Dr. Hadine Joffe, MD, MSc is the Executive Director of the Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Paula A. Johnson Professor of Psychiatry in the Field of Women’s Health at Harvard Medical School. She is an internationally recognized researcher, educator and clinician in the field of women’s health focused on researching the unique and combined impact of gender, biology and economic, social and cultural factors on women’s health and using that new knowledge to transform health care delivery for women.
