In this bonus episode we are joined again by Dr Alyson J. McGregor, Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at Rhode Island Hospital and author of the book “Sex Matters: How male-centric medicine endangers women’s health and what we can do about it”.
Here we discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of considering gender differences in healthcare and health policy, and Alyson tells us her experiences of working in the A&E department over the past year.
