I had the pleasure of meeting one of the great minds of the medical world, Dr. Virginia M. Miller. Her research into sex hormones and sex differences is groundbreaking in the treatment of individuals based on how a disease affects them as either male or female.
More on Dr. Virginia M. Miller:
Dr. Miller’s research focuses on how sex hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone, affect the blood vessels and heart in women and men, as well as the role of other gender differences in cardiovascular health.
An important part of her research is to advocate for research that is sex-specific, meaning that research studies include both men and women, and that the results are analyzed separately by sex. Historically, and today even, that has not always happened, but it is so important, Dr. Miller says. “It is poor science to study one sex and apply the results to the other,” she says. “In the end, that does not help health care providers treat patients the best they can. With heart disease still as the No. 1 cause of death in women and men, we need to continue to research in the best ways possible in order to treat heart disease.”
Dr. Miller was the principal investigator for the Mayo site of the multicenter clinical trial, Kronos Early Estrogen Prevention Study (KEEPS) and is currently the principal investigator for the Specialized Center of Research on Sex Differences. She also has authored more than 250 original publications and reviews. In addition to serving on grant review panels and editorial boards for scientific journals, she served as a member of the governing council for the American Physiological Society and as President of the Organization for the Study of Sex Differences.

Dr. Roger White of Mayo Clinic is the Co-Medical Director of the Mayo Clinic Medical Transport System and overall medical game-changer. Dr. White is re-writing history with the countless lives he is saving and cutting edge changes to the medical community.
While on vacation in Italy, White received a phone call in the midst of dinner. It was emergency medical services calling from Rochester Minn., about a patient in cardiac arrest. Without hesitation, White leapt into action and began directing the paramedics on what to do next. (Something he does anytime his Bat phone rings)
