Womenís health, in focus

paulajohnson96.bmpDr. Paula Johnson (left), executive director of the Connors Center for Women's Health and Gender Biology at Brigham and Women's Hospital, describes her career path and the center's goals in a Saturday New York Times feature called "The Boss."

"People think of womenís health as mammograms and Pap smears besides general health care, but itís much more," said Johnson, who is a cardiologist. "Itís understanding the science of sex differences and how that science influences the way we deliver care, both in the office and by means of highly technical procedures."
