The Connors Center is pleased to announce that Dr. Deborah Bartz, the Director of Education, is the first author of an article published by JAMA Internal Medicine, titled “Clinical Advances in Sex- and Gender-Informed Medicine to Improve the Health of All”. In collaboration with other members of Connors Center leadership, the article presents research showing how sex and gender play a significant role in health and disease, but these insights have not been systematically incorporated into individualized care. By describing the impacts such as genetics, hormones, and barriers to health care, the review provides evidence of disparity. This review serves as a guide to help clinicians incorporate sex and gender considerations in their precision medicine practice. With this data, it encourages clinicians to use existing sex and gender research, integrate it into academia, and increase inclusion in trials and research.
