Evolution and Women's Health
Chris Reiber, Biomedical Anthropologist at Binghamton, shares thoughts from her chapter on women's health to be published in the forthcoming book "Evolution's Empress" (edited by M.L. Fisher, J.R. Garcia, R.S. Chang, & S.L. Strout - with Oxford).
As Reiber writes, "Most importantly, (the evolutionary perspective) will benefit women themselves, by shoring up the foundation upon which women's health science is growing and promoting more direct progress."
Renowned for using evolutionary theory to open up fully novel ways of understanding issues of women's health, Reiber will discuss her insights into ovulation, menstruation, and menopause - and more.
