Dr. Shen earned her Master’s in Public Health and her Medical Degree from the Tulane University School of Medicine. She completed her residency in Gynecology and Obstetrics at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. During the 18 years Dr. Shen spent in general practice she became aware of the lack of physician education on post-reproductive health in women.
Since her 2005 return to Johns Hopkins, she has committed herself to raising awareness of menopausal and post-reproductive health in women to help them stay their healthiest beginning in peri-menopause and as they age.
