    Cutting Edge Research in Geriatrics - UNT Health Science Center

    in Women

    In today’s segment, I’ll be joined by Drs. Janice Knebl and Meharvan Singh from the University of North Texas Health Science Center.  We’ll be talking about how research has identified the potential for hormones like estrogen and progesterone as being important in maintaining a healthy brain. However, this topic is not without its controversy, so my guests will also be addressing factors that may predict whether hormones may or may not be good for the brain. In addition, we will also talk about what ongoing research is being done to ensure that doctors provide menopausal and post-menopausal women with as many viable options as possible to help maintain health and wellness as they age.
