See, that's how mild's post read to me as well, but that's not what he was
actually trying to say.

He said that there is only one hospital he knows of doing research on women's
issues. Which is good.

But what about the issues that we all have, like adhd and heart attacks which
can present or look different in women than in men? If doctors are taught to
look for the symptoms commonly seen in boys or men, they will certainly miss
some very important symptoms that women present with.
