What’s Sex Got to do With It: Risk and Management of Autoimmune Disease
November 12, 3:00 – 3:30pm
Many of us know someone with an autoimmune disease – multiple sclerosis, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus are all autoimmune diseases. But did you know that women are at a greater risk of developing autoimmune diseases than men, and a person’s sex may affect the course of many autoimmune diseases? This session will explore the reasons why and will discuss the management of MS and lupus in women who are pregnant and at different life stages.
Tanuja Chitnis, MD, Karen Costenbader, MD, MPH, and Maria Houtchens, MD
