CLEVELAND, Ohio -- It's getting personal for women at menopause and beyond! "From Bench to Bedside: Menopause Care in the Age of Personalized Medicine" is the theme of the North American Menopause Society's 24th Annual Meeting in Dallas, October 9-12, 2013. There, top menopause and healthy aging experts will translate the latest research findings to the clinic, tackle tough menopause controversies, and demonstrate how digital medicine will change the future of menopause care.
Just some of the highlights of the meeting include:
- Solutions for the sex problem that too few women and doctors discuss -- vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA)
- Release of the first results from ELITE and MsFLASH-3 and new results from KEEPS -- trials designed to settle hormone safety questions
- Debate on whether compounded "bioidentical" hormones help or harm
- News of genetic, probiotic, and nutritional approaches to tailoring diet that may quell chronic conditions, cool hot flashes, curb cancer, fight obesity, and more
- Strategies to rewire brains that could keep minds and memories sharp and reverse mental decline
- Help for women who survive cancer to reclaim their health, well-being, and sex lives
- Innovative -- and proven -- nonhormonal treatments for hot flashes
- Digital developments that promise coordinated care, better doctor-patient communication, improved health outcomes, and crowd-sourced medical discoveries
- More than 100 cutting-edge research abstracts and posters in basic and clinical menopause science
