Men and women experience health issues differently and often have distinct symptoms for the same disease.

Biomedical researchers primarily include white men in their studies. This has led to a lack of information about how women and minorities experience illness and respond to treatments.

Unexplainable's December 2021 episode, How Medicine Mansplained Women's Health, featured doctors, journalists, and health professors. They explained why women have been left out of biomedical research and what that means for patients today.
