About What a Difference Sex and Gender Make: A Gender, Sex and Health Research Casebook:
This peer-reviewed casebook presents a range of research-based accounts that illustrate how attending to gender and sex in health research contributes to advancing knowledge, strengthening science and improving knowledge translation. Written from a critically reflective vantage point, chapters share health researchers' experiences in how they came to understand and engage gender and sex in their work. This collection demonstrates that there is much to be gained from the routine integration of gender and sex across the health research spectrum.

Presented by the CIHR Institute of Gender and Health and the Canadian Women's Health Network

Moderated by Joy Johnson, Scientific Director of the CIHR Institute of Gender and Health
