The meeting will evaluate several medical aspects of human life from an interdisciplinary perspective, specifically focusing on gender differences. The conference will examine the influence of lifestyle and age on gender aspects throughout life, from childhood to old age. A further objective will be to discuss gender differences in addiction. This has traditionally been considered a male problem, but the most recent studies demonstrate, at least in western countries, that both alcoholism and tobacco dependence are rapidly increasing in women – and even more alarmingly, in young women. There is thus a need for new preventive and therapeutic strategies to fully address addiction in both genders.
