Kathryn Reed, MD, has worked as an obstetrician-gynecologist since 1977 and is currently Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology in the College of Medicine at the University of Arizona. Her recent work has included a study of the status of women faculty at the College of Medicine, called the GRACE Project (Generating Respect for All in a Climate of Academic Excellence). Dr. Reed has also conducted inquiries into how women define health and well-being and what should be done for women to be healthy. Both endeavors have uncovered a large interplay between prevailing social values, the conduct of relationships, and health and development.
