10 Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

To increase awareness, search for solutions, and drive change, disparity-related research needs to be strategically disseminated. This study aimed to quantify whether a social media strategy could: (1) amplify dissemination of gender equity-related articles and (2) collect proposed solutions to gender equity issues. In April 2018, eight published journal articles covering separate gender equity issues were presented in a 1-hour Twitter chat hosted by Physician's Weekly. Read More

Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Desire for Reversal of Sterilization Among U.S. Women.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

1 Department of Sociology, Portland State University, Portland, Oregon.

Racial and ethnic disparities in rates of female sterilization, a prominent method of contraception, have been consistently observed for decades. Such disparities are also evident in subsequent desire for reversal of the procedure. Additional work is needed to better understand these patterns, particularly given the historical context of coercive sterilization patterns in minority and low-income women. Read More

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program: Increasing Access to Screening.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Apr;28(4):427-431

Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Georgia.

The National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) provides breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services to low-income, uninsured, and underinsured women across the nation. Although the program has provided services to more than 5 million women since 1991, there remains a significant burden of breast and cervical cancer with inequities among certain populations. To reduce this burden and improve health equity, the NBCCEDP is expanding its scope to include population-based strategies to increase screening in health systems and communities through the implementation of patient and provider evidence-based interventions, connecting women in communities to clinical services, increasing opportunities to access screening, and enhancing the targeting of women in need of services.

Breast Cancer Screening and Care Among Black Sexual Minority Women: A Scoping Review of the Literature from 1990 to 2017.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

1 Department of Epidemiology, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland.

Introduction: Black women are more likely to be diagnosed at later stages of breast cancer compared with White women due to lower frequency of screening and lack of timely follow-up after abnormal screening results. Disparities in breast cancer screening, risk, and mortality are present within both Black women and sexual minority communities; however, there exists limited research concerning breast cancer care among Black sexual minority women.

Materials And Methods: This scoping review examines the literature from 1990 to 2017 of the breast cancer care continuum among Black sexual minority women, including behavioral risk factors, screening, treatment, and survivorship. Read More

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

4 Department of Psychiatry, Women's Health Research at Yale, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

Background: Sex is a biological variable linked to our chromosomal complement, while gender refers to one's personal identification as influenced by social, cultural, and personal experience. Both sex and gender and their interactions influence health outcomes. Although this is increasingly clear, we have not yet ensured that the next generation of physicians and physician-scientists is being taught the empirical findings necessary to understand these relationships.

1 Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Institute of Endocrinology, Liaoning Provincial Key Laboratory of Endocrine Diseases, The First Affiliated Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, P.R. China.

Background: Although increasing data suggest that hyperthyroidism is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes, there are only a few reports with different conclusions on whether the mild transient reduction in thyrotropin (TSH) with or without free thyroxine (FT4) elevation during the early stage of pregnancy also causes adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Subjects And Methods: We analyzed data from 3,783 women in this study from August 2011 to December 2013. Participants completed a questionnaire survey. Read More

Collaboration of Care for Women with Epilepsy in their Reproductive Years.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 Mar 15;28(3):339-345. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

2 New York University School of Medicine, New York, New York.

Over half a million women of childbearing age have epilepsy, many of which will require family planning care at some point in their reproductive years. Matters relating to contraception, pregnancy, fertility, and sexual functioning are all impacted to varying degrees by the use of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) to treat epilepsy and require active management by a woman's neurologist. It is important that a woman's obstetrician/gynecologist (OBGYN) and internist are aware of the way in which their care may be related to her epilepsy care and how this can be successfully comanaged with her neurologist.

3 Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina.

As sex and gender are assigned at birth before gender identity development, many individuals experience feelings of discordance between their gender identity and their sex and gender assigned at birth. The transgender community has not been well understood by medical and mental health fields. As such, this marginalized and vulnerable community faces multiple barriers to receiving health maintenance and specialized care, both at the community and patient-specific level. Read More
