Jul 29, 2021 from 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Are you curious about what to expect from menopause? Do you know how it differs from perimenopause, or what is behind symptoms, such as hot flashes, sleeplessness, and changes in metabolism? Join us on July 29 for an important presentation by women’s health expert, Dr. Sherry Ross, M.D, about the effects of menopause and their potential impact on women’s lives and careers.

Bring the questions you have always wanted to ask about the physical and cognitive changes women face before, during, and after menopause. USC Gould alumna Allyson Sonenshine, JD 1996, will be in conversation with Dr. Sherry and moderate a Q&A session.

We look forward to seeing you!
