From the Publisher

For decades, medicine saw men and women as essentially the same physically except in the area of reproduction. However, a new and groundbreaking science of gender-specific medicine has discovered astonishing distinctions between male and female bodies. From the thickness of our skin to the signs of a heart attack to ways we metabolize drugs, the sexes have significant physiological differences. But, what do these differences mean to you and your doctor?

In this groundbreaking book, internationally respected academic physician and lecturer, Dr. Marianne Legato pulls together more than a decade of research into sex-specific health. The result is a powerful tool for anyone interested in the critical nuances in the ways men and women might present symptoms or be treated for disease. It’s a book that will not only change the way you think about women’s health, it just might save your life.

Meet the Designers Hoping to Treat ADHD and Alzheimer's with Gaming

Could a doctor treating ADHD or Alzheimer’s one day prescribe a video game? Eddie Martucci and Matthew Omernick think so -- and the cofounders of Boston-based Akili Interactive Labs recently raised more than $30 million from pharma companies, government grants and investors who agree. The team’s tablet-based game, EVO, guides players (er, patients) through a series of foreign worlds, where they collect stars and gems and interact with aliens. What seems like superficial play at first is actually carefully designed to improve attention, inhibition and working memory in kids with ADHD. Martucci:

The Revolution That Never Happened

Thomas Goetz WHEN MY COMPANY, Iodine, launched in 2013, we were part of an epidemic of startups seeking to change health care. There was great enthusiasm on the part of entrepreneurs and investors alike for bringing technology—particularly information technology—to health care, to unleash a wave of transformation that would improve hospitals, health insurers, and drug companies. Given the vast mess that is health care, it seemed that change required a revolution—from electronic medical records and prescriptions to robotic surgery. The hope was that “digital health” would upend health care th
