The Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard…
On January 17th, the Connors Center hosted Laura Huang, PhD, Associate Professor of Business Administration from Harvard Business School for her presentation, “Impact of Physician Gender on Cardiac Care for Women: Potential Role of Bias and Parallels between the Healthcare and Business Environments.”
Dr. Huang presented findings from her 2018 study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States (PNAS). The study of more than 500,000 heart attack patients admitted to hospital emergency departments in Florida between 1991 and 2010 found that female patients treated by male physicians were less likely to survive than patients of either gender treated by female physicians or male patients treated by male physicians.
