Dr. JoAnn Manson


According to Dr. JoAnn Manson, a leader in women’s health research, one out of five women will experience severe symptoms of menopause and she says they don’t have to!

In her new book, “Hot Flashes, Hormones and Your Health,” Manson talks about recent studies that provide reassurance for younger, recently menopausal women who are considering hormone therapy.

Manson says that age and amount of time since onset of menopause play huge roles in the effectiveness of estrogen treatment.

She talks with Growing Bolder about the confusion, risk and concern involved with hormone replacement and the truth about menopause.
