Struggle over how to manage sex and gender diversity in athletics will be the focus of the 2018 John and Marsha Ryan Bioethicist-in-Residence lecture later this month at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

Alice Dreger, an award-winning scholar, researcher and writer on sex and gender issues, will present “Who Should Count as a Woman on the Playing Field? The Question of Intersex and Trans in Sports.” The lecture is at 5 p.m., March 21, in the SIU School of Law courtroom in Carbondale. It will be simulcast to the SIU School of Medicine in Springfield.
