  About the cover  
 

Women have long been underrepresented in the field of medicine. Moreover, women's unique health issues, as well as gender-specific responses to many diseases, have too often been inadequately addressed in medical education and medical research. At UC Davis Health System, faculty and staff take a comprehensive approach to addressing gender medicine, and in particular, women's health.
