What Does It Mean to Be A Man? A Woman? Why Does It Matter? When Does It Not?

Many scholars separate the social, cultural, and historical (gender) from the biological (sex) in order to examine the way that we understand the body and how those interpretations define social roles.

At Vital, we explore the many roles that gender plays in health and healthcare–from defining who gives what kind of care to influencing research topics and subject selection.
