By looking into empirical, historical data and research, this course investigates how women’s health and wellbeing have been neglected historically because most doctors and research participants have been men. How has that impacted women’s health outcomes in the past and present, and what can be done today to reduce these inequalities in the future? In addition, the course will also address inequities related to race as well as transgender, intersex, and nonbinary people, as further examples of underrepresented and pathologized groups in medical research and health care provision.
