Thursday, May 13, 2021
6:30 PM – 7:20 PM CT

The focus of this year’s SAEM Jeopardy is COVID-19 and its impact as viewed through a sex, gender, and diversity lens. Categories will include biological sex-based differences associated with mortality risk as well as medications and vaccinations. Gender- and diversity-oriented questions will highlight how certain populations have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic in relationship to both mortality and  collateral damage. The goal of the game is to engage and educate academic colleagues about the importance of considering sex, gender, and diversity in their research, teaching, and clinical care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define and differentiate between biological sex and gender
  • Discuss why COVID-19 has caused high mortality rates in Black and brown communities
  • Identify sex-based pharmacological differences that should be considered in drug and vaccine development
  • Describe several differences in immunological response between men and women
