Women in Research with Dr. Spitz

 

Dr. Robert Spitz at the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center

Did you know just as recently as 25 years ago women did not play a major role in evaluating medications through the clinical trial process?  The reasoning behind this had a lot to do with the physiological differences between men and women, namely, hormonal changes brought about by menstruation and menopause.

As the years went on it was realized it made very little sense to prescribe a medication to a woman that had only been tested on a man.  Changes were made in how we evaluate investigational products and today, thankfully, women are no longer unwelcome from what appeared to be at one time an exclusive “boy’s club.”

Dr. Robert M. Spitz has been a primary investigator for women’s healthcare clinical trials for over two decades. He will bring his expertise and a wealth of information to the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center on April 25th at 6pm to discuss the important role women play in clinical health care research.  He will share with those in attendance his experience as a physician and primary investigator of research studies.  The event is sponsored by the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center, 27 Chase Street in Pawcatuck, and there is no cost to attend.  Questions will be encouraged!
