SOM physician discusses issues surrounding menopause

Diane Harper, M.D., professor of community and family medicine, spoke on WDAF-TV on Wednesday, Sept. 14, about the myths and issues that women need to know about menopause. September is National Menopause Month.

Harper said that partly because women today are in generally better health than generations past, the average age for women to experience menopause has risen to 55. She said the symptoms of menopause are easier for women in better health and better physical fitness.
