Prentice Women's Hospital, 250 E. Superior St. Third Floor, Conference Room L South, Chicago, IL 60611

Since the passage of rhte NIH Revitalization Act of 1993, mandating the inclusion of women in federally funded clinical trials, there has been a growing body of evidence that sex differences are found in all body systems beyond reproductive health. Sex differences can have significant and underestimated consequences in clinical medicine. New scientifica nd clinical interest is arising in sex- and gender-based medicine. The objectives of this conference are to highlight gender-based differences in diagnosis and treatment in the specific areas of Cardiology, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Infectious Disease, Neurology, Pelvic Health, Pelvic Health, Psychiatry, and Rheumatology. Please join us as we highlight the Women's Centers for specialty medicine at Northwestern Medicine.

After attending this educational activity, participants should be able to:
1. Enhance patient care with a heightened awareness of gender-based differences in multiple medical and surgical specialties
2. Recognize available resources to improve patient care in women's health of all ages throughout Northwestern Medicine
