The question driving this Menopause Talk is: "Is Hormone Therapy Right for ME?" To help each of us answer this question, host Nina Coslov, co-founder of Women Living Better, will (virtually) take us inside the examination room of esteemed doctor, researcher, and menopause expert Dr. Nanette Santoro. Through a series of case studies, Dr. Santoro will give us a window into the questions she asks her menopausal patients, and how she, in partnership with them, arrives at her recommendations regarding whether hormone therapy is a good fit for them. In a recent survey, only 7% of ob-gyn residents reported feeling adequately prepared to manage women experiencing menopause. Fortunately, through this Menopause Talk, we can benefit from Dr. Santoro’s expertise, research and experience as we make decisions that will influence our health and quality of life now and in the future. Bring your questions because we will leave plenty of time for them.
