Title of Collaborative Activity:

The Science of Sex and Gender in Human Health

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The new online sex and gender course, Sex and Gender Influences in Health and Disease: From Bench to Bedside, currently in development consists of a series of modules based on clinical topics (immunology, cardiovascular disease, mental health, pulmonary, neurology, and endocrinology). The goal of the course is for learners to gain an understanding of sex and gender influences on health and disease, as well as how these influences can be studied and to integrate those concepts into their research and practice. The material showcases examples from basic science through clinical trials and translation to practice to help ensure participants understand the importance of considering the influence of sex and gender throughout the research spectrum and beyond. This course is being developed by the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health in collaboration with the FDA Office of Women’s Health. It will offer free CEUs in a variety of disciples and be available worldwide. The first module is expected to be available in spring of 2019.
