Gender Inequities in Health: What Can We Do to Close the Gaps?

5:30 p.m.
The Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen Street West

Men and women have different needs and challenges in getting health care.  Men and women are treated differently when they access care.  What causes inequities? Biology? Bias? Poverty? Health care delivery?  How can scientific evidence inform practice and policy to help us close these gaps?  Join leading scientists for discussion and debate.
