Scientists and community members speak about a variety of topics including:
1) the dramatic need for scientific information on women's health and on gender-specific factors determining health and disease;
2) the scientific tradition of excluding women as participants in many clinical trials, and the continuing practice of "pooling" subject data rather than analyzing health outcomes by gender that have each contributed to this "knowledge gap,";
3) the progress being made in reversing these historical trends, and;
4) new scientific information being uncovered in women's health and gender-specific medicine.
