March 19, 2012 — Menopause is a midlife change all women share. What was silently suffered-through by our mothers is now something women take time to learn about and find time to talk about. Women have questions about hot flashes, headaches, depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, hormones, libido, and bones. There are now certified menopause practitioners, educators, and clinicians. Times, they are a changing.’  Dr. Dan Gottlieb talks about research and symptom prevention and management with menopause experts Drs. C. Neill Epperson and Ann Steiner. Neill Epperson directs the Penn Center for Women’s Behavioral Wellness. Ann Steiner is a Clinical Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Penn Health for Women.
