Introducing: Dr. Kirtly Parker Jones

Welcome. I'm Dr. Kirtley Jones from University of Utah Health, and this is the 7 Domains of Women's Health show on The Scope.

I'm retired from my practice of reproductive medicine and the honor of listening for 40 years to women tell their stories about their lives. Over the years, it's clear that women are so much more than the problems that they brought to our office, and their problems at home and in their neighborhood affect their health and you know that. Every medical problem is molded by the complexities of women's lives for better and for worse.

Introducing: The Show

So we're here at the studios of The Scope at University of Utah Health to talk about women's health through the lenses, through the spectacles, of the seven domains of women's health:

  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Social
  • Intellectual
  • Financial
  • Environmental
  • Spiritual

We'll have interviews, quizzes, fast facts, and conversation. And our upcoming episodes will look at love and whether it's a secondhand emotion. That's me and Tina Turner are going talk about that, but it's mostly just going to be me. But we have some wonderful interviews. Topics like menopause and what's it like to make this transition in your life. And nutrition, what you should and shouldn't eat. And domestic violence, which is part of so many people's lives and what we can do about it. And other big health issues in the lives of women and their families.

So here's what we're doing here. We're going to be talking a little bit more in-depth on various topics and how each of the seven domains of health affects that particular medical issue so that we can put these really important critical issues in a framework that really mirrors the lives that we lead.

This is a conversation for all the women in your life, and we're going to have this conversation together. They'll be about 30 minutes, so tune in with your coffee or your water. Get on your exercise bike or go for a walk. We're about just the right length to get in your daily motion. Put on your virtual stethoscope and listen to your own heartbeat. And join us for the 7 Domains of Women's Health wherever you get your podcasts.
