Focus on Women's and Men’s Health
About This Show
There are real differences in men's and women's health concerns. The life expectancy gap is decreasing between men and women, but men still deal with higher rates of cardiovascular disease, prostate and testicular cancers, fluctuating testosterone levels, and fertility issues. Women’s health issues include cancer, reproductive and sexual health issues, osteoporosis prevention and management, nutrition and sports medicine. This series focuses on new developments in the diagnosis and treatment of gender-specific health issues.
