2020 IADR/AADR/CADR GENERAL SESSIONThe 98th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR was to be held in conjunction with the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 44th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from March 18-21, 2020 in Washington, D.C., USA. Due to COVID 19 and the world pandemic, the meeting had to be canceled, but we were able to collect some of the science that was planned for presentation to be available to our members as part of an on demand meeting.
The recordings in this library are a selection of the science that was to be presented onsite at the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, IADR Centennial Plenaries and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.
This session can be purchased as part of the full meeting recordings within the product bundles
SESSION DESCRIPTIONSimilar to the way that oral health is, in the Surgeon General’s words, “essential to general health and well-being,” understanding sex and gender influences on disease prevalence and pathogenesis is fundamental to the health of all. Going beyond the well-known examples of sex differences research, in this talk we will explore the impact that these influences have on the return of the research investment dollar and why the NIH is committed to including sex as a pillar of rigorous and reproducible science.
- To define the terms sex and gender, and to give examples of how these variables, when appropriately applied to biomedical research, result in: • a more complete knowledge base • personalize and appropriate medical care • better return on research dollar investment
- To describe the complex intersection of multiple factors that influence the health of women using a life course perspective and a multidimensional framework approach.
- To provide practical strategies for implementing sex and gender informed care across the biomedical and dental continuum which will lead to better health for all.
