About Us

The Division of Sex and Gender in Emergency Medicine (SGEM), formerly Women's Health in Emergency Care (WHEC), in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Alpert Medical School at Brown University aims to advance and promote sex and gender-specific research and medical care as they relate to medical emergencies. The impact that sex and gender can have on patient outcomes in the Emergency Department (ED) is significant. It is important to begin incorporating the gender lens into our research, education and medical practice. SGEM performs and promotes sex and gender research and is also very active in educating practicing physicians, residents and students. Recently, SGEM initiated a Public Campaign to educate patients in the ED on the importance their biological sex and gender affects their health. Emergency Medicine Providers at The Rhode Island Hospital, The Miriam Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital are learning how to translate this state-of-the-art science into life saving outcomes.
