Women's health issues are in the news in a big way these days. New research has shown encouraging results for women with ovarian cancer with a new screening process for early detection. There is also new hope for diabetes and better treatments with the recent identification of protein pathways. But there was also a study that shows women being underserved and underesearched and consequently getting fewer appropriate treatments for health issues. Dr. Nancy Lynch writes about the the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health initiative focused on "improving women’s access to and outcomes from treatments using medical devices". This is an amazing article which everyone should read as it points out how often women are using treatments and devices designed for men!
As new research leads to better treatments, a positive attitude can go a long way in improving results as well. Watch Stacey Gualandi's interview of Ann Murray Paige, whose award-winning documentary, "The Breast Cancer Diaries," and book, "Pink Tips: Breast Cancer Advice From Someone Who's Been There," reflect her courage and optimistic approach to life. We can all learn from this!
