LWBIWH research and programs continue to show dynamic and cutting-edge information related to the care of women not previously emphasized. Recent studies on gender differences in disease and treatment have uncovered a need for the integration of gender-specific medicine into the national medical school curriculum in addition to the ongoing research and outreach.
