A fascinating Plenary Symposium planned for this year’s NAMS Annual Meeting will discuss the recent advances in understanding anxiety symptoms during the menopause transition. “In the past decade, we have begun to appreciate how certain women are at increased risk for depressive symptoms and depressive disorders as they transition through menopause, even if they have no history of a mood disorder,” says Dr Pauline Maki, symposium moderator.
“Plenary Symposium #10 ‘Menopause & Mood: Anxiety, Depression, & Beyond’ will begin with an overview of the latest scientific research on menopause and anxiety, with a focus on new data from the Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation. That exciting scientific talk will be followed by a lecture providing helpful, practical advice for screening patients for mood disorders in a busy clinical practice.”
This session during the NAMS Annual Meeting in Orlando is scheduled for Saturday, October 6, from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM. The session will include presentations from the top experts in the field and also time for Q&A with the audience.
