Menopause Next Prescriptions for Health Topic
November 4, 2009
What are the signs and symptoms of menopause? Is hormone replacement therapy still recommended? What health conditions increase with menopause?
These questions and more will be answered during the November 18, “Prescriptions for Health” presentation featuring Susan Eastler, WHCNP. The event will take place from 6-7:15 p.m. in the Chisholm Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital and will include light refreshments. The presentation is part of Franklin Memorial Hospital’s monthly community health information series that is free and open to the public.
Eastler is a nurse practitioner at Franklin Health Women’s Care in Farmington, specializing in women’s health, including obstetrics and gynecology. She is also a certified menopause clinician.
This interactive program will highlight information about menopause—its short-term effects such as hot flashes, fatigue, and irritability—as well as long-term risks like osteoporosis and heart disease. Approaches to menopause management to alleviate symptoms and health risks that result from a decline of estrogen production will also be discussed.
“Menopause happens to all women, but affects each woman uniquely,” said Eastler. Eastler utilizes an individualized approach to menopause management for her patients. “No intervention is appropriate for every woman and each option has a risk and benefit,” Eastler added.
Registration for the presentation is required, as space is limited. For more information or to register call Jodi Cordes at 779-2592 or 1-800-398-6031, ext. 2592.
