Women's Health
Dr. Kristina Petrocco-Napuli
8 am-12 pm and 1-5 pm

More than 100 million Americans are living with chronic pain and most of them are females. Interestingly enough even though women are more likely to experience pain their pain is often overlooked by providers in comparison to their male counterparts. These disparities exist throughout healthcare and as providers it is imperative to remain vigilant in understanding how pain impacts this patient population and the symptoms which correlate with conditions that impact women. Throughout this session discussion related to the trends in chronic pain and specific indicators related to the patient encounter will be highlighted.
