Presented by Felice L. Gersh, M.D.
Estrogen plays several important roles in brain function. By maintaining many facets of neurotransmission, neuroprotection, synaptic plasticity and mitochondrial function, estrogen supports learning, memory and mood. When estrogen levels decline during menopause, forgetfulness and other cognitive deficiencies become more common. Felice L. Gersh, M.D., a board-certified OB/GYN and medical director of the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, California, is one of a small number of fellowship-trained, integrative gynecologists. Dr. Gersh is an award-winning physician and renowned national speaker on ovarian health, menopause, environmental toxins and other important issues affecting women of all ages. In this webinar, she will present the essentials of estrogen, discuss the impact of menopause on learning and memory, and provide nutritional recommendations for cognitive support.‡
