April 6 interview at Women & Children First of Maya Dusenbery

Save the date!  I'm proud to be in conversation with this author, who connects the dots as no on else before has done about how sexism directly effects treatment of women with chronic pain and fatigue.

In Doing Harm: The Truth About How Bad Medicine and Lazy Science Leave Women Dismissed, Misdiagnosed, and Sick, May Dusenbery brings together scientific and sociological research, interviews with doctors and researchers, and personal stories from women across the country to provide the first comprehensive, accessible look at how sexism in medicine harms women today.
