How an understanding of sex, gender, race, and class can save our lives and money

For years Justina Trott has wondered why 90% of drugs were withdrawn from the market because of side effects in women, and why spending more on health care in the U.S. has resulted in decreased health and a widening health gap. She offers several policies, informed by a process that acknowledges our differences in sex, gender, race and class that can improve health and save lives and money.
