We've all heard about the hot flashes, the night sweats, the mood swings and the hormonal changes that are brought on by menopause. For many women, however, the "change of life" also brings about a number of issues that aren't often discussed.
To learn more about all of the aspects of menopause, and to finally have a chance to get some answers to all of your questions, join OB/GYNs Drs. Gisele McKinney and Bradley Forsyth and Physical Therapist Johnnie Kleinschmidt for Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Menopause (But Were Afraid to Ask), a three-night speaker series.
