Yale’s One-Day Medical School & FabOverFifty.com Informed Women About Symptoms, Hormones and Latest Treatments for Menopause

November 7, 2018

NEW HAVEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 7, 2018--As approximately one third of a woman’s life is spent post-menopause, doctors from Yale University hosted Yale’s “One-Day Medical School: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Menopause but Were Too Afraid to Ask” event on October 25, 2018 to provide essential health education for women 45+.

“Public health and medicine improvements over the past 150 years have increased the life expectancy of women into their late 80s. While the age of menopause onset has not changed, the transition to menopause has larger implications as it relates to sexuality and overall heath, both physiological and psychological,” says Mary Jane Minkin, MD, Clinical Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Yale University. “It’s important for women to recognize the early signs of menopause and learn how to cope with hot flashes, changes in sleep quality, joint and muscle health, sexual functioning, and hindrances to comfort in everyday life.”

Dr. Rose Tamura and Dr. Julia Schlam Edelman, authors of Menopause Matters: Your Guide to a Long and Healthy Life, joined Dr. Minkin in addressing the following issues for the audience of both women and health care providers:

“We hope that through continued education and awareness women can enter menopause confidently, equipped with the information and solutions they need to lead the best lives possible,” said Dr. Minkin.

The day’s sessions can be streamed on demand through the rest of 2018/19. “Women will have the opportunity to see it on their laptops, desktops and tablets, or even phones, at their leisure,” adds Geri Brin, Founder of FabOverFifty.com. “We strongly encourage women to take advantage of this priceless education.”
