Summary
Half of all American women suffer from at least one chronic health condition-- and the numbers are increasing. Women often exhibit different symptoms than their male counterparts, suffer disproportionately from many debilitating conditions, and may react differently to prescription drugs and other therapies ... and doctors are still operating with a knowledge gap when it comes to women's health. Dusenbery offers a clear-eyed explanation of the root causes of this insidious and entrenched bias, and suggests concrete steps we can take to cure it
