From our chromosomes to beyond, men and women are biologically different - but, in its years of progress, modern medicine has taken this difference into account.

Or hasn’t it?

In her new book, Sex Matters, Dr Alyson McGregor tells us that nothing could be further from the truth.

From pain management to heart disease, hormone therapy to stroke, she says that medicine is not only male-centric, but that in being so it is endangering women’s lives.

At 18:00 on 27 May, journalist Lynn Enright will interview Dr McGregor, Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, about her revolutionary investigation into medicine as we know it.

During the webinar we will take a deep dive into the inequalities in medicine you may already have suspected existed, and the ones that will shock you.
