WHY: Sexual dysfunction and related problems are among some of the most common health problems in the country. Physicians and other health care providers will gather at the UTHSC to learn more about sexual disorders in men and women. The program is designed to provide health care professionals with the necessary tools and practical advice on approaching patients about the topics of sexual health and treatments for disorders. “It is vital for physicians to inquire about sexual health matters,” said LeRoy Jones, M.D., assistant professor of surgery at the UTHSC. “The development of erectile dysfunction may be a precursor to diabetes mellitus or heart disease,” he said.
