Can gender differences in biological, behavioral, and psychosocial factors explain the gender gap in longevity? Are men the "weaker sex"? Do they engage in more health-damaging behaviors than women? And how do men and women cope with stress? This presentation will present research findings implicating variables from all three of the above domains and will focus primarily on the main cause of death among women and men: heart disease.
