In the post:

How do you think that common gender stereotypes could negatively affect patients in health care settings? 
In psychology, it is assumed that everyone has some biases. Consider your own biases and whether they could potentially affect your treatment of others. 
What strategies could be used to counteract these biases? Include hypothetical examples and/or personal examples if applicable. 

If applicable, be sure to cite any resources, including textbooks, you use to support the essay.
