It’s time to treat women differently: the case for sex-based medicine
By Sharon Green, executive director, Women’s Health Research Institute at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

While this specialization may seem like a competitive edge, new Northwestern Medicine® research suggests that repetitive activity in just one sport, high impact or not, may not be a great idea for growing athletes.
