Dr Sharon Malone is an eminent American physician who has worked as an obstetrician and gynaecologist for over 30 years in Washington DC. After 15 years of working mostly as an obstetrician, Sharon changed to specialise in menopause care around the time of her own perimenopause. She is passionate about educating women to understand their own hormone journey and empower them with evidence based information about hormone treatments.
The experts discuss the challenges of influencing and persuading medical colleagues on the benefits of hormone replacement, the importance of patient choice and agency, and the lack of menopause research and need for government funding.
Dr Malone’s advice to women:
- Find your community of women who will support you and understand what you’re going through
- Be active, keep exercising regularly
- Maintain a healthy diet and eating habits; processed foods negatively affect so many aspects of your health
