Brown, Williams edit book on older women’s health

What happens when two world-class experts on menopause and pelvic floor disorders work together? They literally write the book on older women’s health concerns.

Heidi Brown, MD, MAS, of our Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, and Makeba Williams, MD, Director of our Division of Academic Specialists in Ob-Gyn, edited the book “Challenges in Older Women’s Health: A Guide for Clinicians.” Williams and Brown each authored chapters on their respective expertise areas of menopause and bladder and bowel incontinence.

The book also includes a chapter on breast health from UW Ob-Gyn clinical assistant professor Laura Bozzuto, MD, and chapters by UW Ob-Gyn residency graduates Emily Rosen, MD and Lauren Verrilli, MD.

You can find the book here. Congratulations to all involved on this incredible achievement!

Bozzuto publishes executive summary of Early-Onset Breast Cancer Evidence Review Conference, commentary

In 2018, Laura Bozzuto, MD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Academic Specialists in Ob-Gyn, was invited to join the ACOG Breast Cancer Evidence Review Panel to review the current evidence on how best to educate women’s healthcare providers about early onset breast cancer, publish a literature review, and serve as content experts in the development of scripts for provider education videos on early onset breast cancer.

The panel published “Executive Summary of the Early-Onset Breast Cancer Evidence Review Conference” in Obstetrics and Gynecology in June:

This article summarizes the relevant literature, existing guidance, and validated tools to guide health care providers in the prevention, early detection, and special considerations of early-onset breast cancer. Substantive knowledge gaps were noted and summarized to provide guidance for future research.

The executive summary inspired further commentary in the Green Journal. Read the Executive Summary here, and take a look at the feedback here
