Sex Disparities in Organ Allocation: Leveling the Field
June 25, 2021 12:00am EDT
Sex disparities in access to life saving organ transplantation has been an ongoing and vexing problem. Allocation regulations, biologic differences as well as social determinants are but some of the issues that may play a role. However, much of the sex disparity in access to transplantation is still not fully elucidated. This virtual symposium, sponsored through the University of Colorado’s Center for Transplant Care, Research and Education, will bring leading experts in Kidney, Liver, Lung and Heart transplantation together to both define the many facets of this issue as well as offer thoughtful, actionable and novel solutions to diminish this sex-based disparity. The symposium will include lectures by leaders in the field as well as interactive small-group discussions that will cover all aspects of access to transplantation from biologic to regulatory barriers. CME credits will be offered to participants through the University of Colorado Online
