Women’s and men’s unique chromosomal make-ups, (reproductive and hormonal) physiology, and gender roles in each culture and society have a profound impact on health across the life course that differs between women and men, and increasingly visible non binary persons. In this talk, you will learn the fascinating differences among female, male and intersex babies, pubertal and adolescent girls, boys and questioning youth, young and middle-aged adults, including health issues specific to women and transmen, e.g. pregnancy, lactation and the menopausal transition, that impact health in profound ways, regardless of other genetic factors.

Instructor: Marcia Stefanick, PhD, Professor of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research Center) and of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Stanford University, Director of the Stanford Women and Sex Differences in Medicine (WSDM) Center.
