"Menopause: Is it Hot in Here?" Topic of Upcoming Free Lecture

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: May 18, 2009 –As baby boomers age, an unprecedented number of women will pass through menopause in the next two decades. Because women can now live over one-third of their years after menopause, menopause has become a serious area of concern for women. That is why Southeast Georgia Health System is offering the lecture “Menopause: Is it Hot in Here?” on Thursday, May 21. This presentation, part of the Health System’s ongoing series of free community lectures, is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Cafeteria Conference Center on the Camden Campus, 2000 Dan Proctor Drive, St. Marys.

He is also a member of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists, the Medical Association of Georgia, the Georgia OB/GYN Society, and the Camden County Rotary Club.
