How Women Manage and Mismanage Their Health
Inaccurate diagnosis and treatments. Unnecessary procedures.
Does this sound like your healthcare journey? Let’s try to fix that!
As women, we are typically the medical gatekeepers for their families. We choose doctors for ourselves and our loved ones. We usually go to the doctor more often than our male counterparts. We stay on top of everyone’s health information.
Yet did you know we tend to undermine our own care? We can be so focused on family members that we fail to ask doctors the right questions for our own healthcare.
In her soon to be released book, SIDELINED: How Women Manage & Mismanage Their Health, researcher and author Susan Salenger examines the many ways in which women manage and sometimes mismanage their healthcare.
We’ll explore the cultural and medical history that has conditioned women not to act in their own best interests as well as the gender biases of the medical community. We’ll learn why women are misdiagnosed more often than men and why they are routinely omitted from clinical trials.
Don’t miss this essential conversation that we all should be having about our healthcare and wellbeing! Join us Sunday, April 24 on “The Ellementa Show!”
