This all-encompassing talk on perimenopause and menopause exposes the reasons women are being misled about optimizing their health. Learn everything you need for a great foundation on your health, including new findings that your doctor might not even be aware of.
Dr. Ekta Kapoor, M.B.B.S., Mayo Clinic Division of General Internal Medicine, has a strong research focus in women's health and is involved in multiple studies on hormone therapy in postmenopausal women and young women with surgical menopause.
She leads several important research projects, including serving as the project lead for the clinical core of the recently funded Specialized Center of Research Excellence (SCORE) on Sex Differences from the Office of Research on Women's Health and the National Institute on Aging. She is a co-investigator on a large National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded multicenter trial: the Kronos Early Estrogen Prevention (KEEPS) Continuation study.
In 2018, Dr. Kapoor was awarded a benefactor-funded career development award to lead a randomized placebo-controlled trial investigating the effect of estrogen dosing on cardiovascular disease risk parameters in women undergoing oophorectomy at a young age.
Dr. Kapoor's research aims to improve the health and care of postmenopausal women. With the increase in life expectancy, women spend one-third or more of their lives in menopause. Also, the health issues of postmenopausal women are distinct from those of men, and have to be managed with strategies that may not be applicable to men. Therefore, there is an increased need for research with a specific focus on the unique health needs of this population.
