the latest clinical advances in gender-specific medicine at the Annual

Conference on Gender-Specific Medicine, Monday, December 6 at The Roosevelt

Hotel in New York City. Presentations will cover topics ranging from depression

to cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases to urology. Editors, producers

and reporters are invited to attend.
