Description:
Contemporary American women face many myths related to a variety of health challenges. The good news is that many of the leading threats to women's health can be prevented. Dr. Gonzales will present the top seven threats to women's health, compiled from statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other leading health organizations. The effect of stress on physiology will be discussed at length. The human body’s response to normal amounts of stress, such as a bad day at the office, is likely to bring brief increases in heart rate and mild elevations in hormone levels. But a toxic stress response, stemming from exposure to a major shock or prolonged adversity such as physical or emotional abuse, can produce catastrophic outcomes. The accumulated lifelong toll of stress-related hormones sharply raises the risk of chronic diseases in adulthood, ranging from heart disease and diabetes to depression and atherosclerosis. In addition to this reality, treatment outcomes for women with these conditions are not as predictable as they are for their male cohorts.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • understand global disparities in the delivery of women’s health care. 
  • recognize trends and modest gains over the past two decades. 
  • identify leading causes of death in American women.
