For the third time, Drs Bowman and Allen have coauthored an important
and helpful book for and about women doctors. Dr Erica Frank, principal investigator
of the Woman Physicians' Health Study (http://med.emory.edu/WPHS),
has joined them. She brings firm, fresh data from her survey of 10 000
women physicians, 59% of whom responded to questions about their professional
and personal lives, including sociodemographic and psychosocial characteristics,
health behaviors, health status, and counseling practices.
