9th IGM Congress in Vienna
When it comes to gender medicine, la pura’s experts are in great demand: most recently also at the “Congress of the International Society of Gender Medicine”, IGM Congress for short, which was held in September in the Billrothhaus in Vienna (headquarters of the Society of Physicians). Top-class scientists from all over the world met here to discuss the influence of gender on diagnosis and treatment. The importance of gender with respect to acute and chronic diseases was also an important topic. The focus was not only on the steps already taken and the reflection of the current status – but above all also on the future and the role of gender medicine in world health.
