Johns Hopkins to Host Forum on Hormone Replacement Therapy Sept. 18
Two Johns Hopkins physicians will lead a discussion about hormone replacement therapy, in a forum designed to help Baltimore-area women find answers to their questions about the use of hormones during and after menopause. The event will be held Wednesday, Sept. 18, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Shriver Hall on the University's Homewood campus.
Howard Zacur, M.D., director of reproductive endocrinology and professor of gynecology and obstetrics, and Roger Blumenthal, M.D., director of preventive cardiology and associate professor of medicine, will discuss recent results of the national Women's Health Initiative study, which indicated some health risks from some hormone supplements.
