April Med School Café - Perimenopause: Managing
the Big Change


The April Med School Café lecture will feature Dr. Frankie Bodie, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the USA College of Medicine. His lecture, titled "Perimenopause: Managing the Big Change," will take place on Tuesday, April 13, 2010, at the Hearin-Chandler Family YMCA at 951 Downtowner Blvd. in Mobile. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m., and the presentation begins at noon.

Dr. Bodie will outline the symptoms of perimenopause and treatments available to women who are going through perimenopause. Perimenopause, otherwise known as menopause transition, is the stage of a woman's reproductive life that begins at least 12 months before menopause, when the ovaries gradually begin to produce less estrogen. It usually starts in a woman's 40s, but can start in a woman's 30s or earlier.

The Med School Café lecture and lunch are provided free of charge, but reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, please call Kim Barnes at (251) 460-7770 or e-mail

Med School Café is a free community lecture series sponsored by the USA Physicians Group. Each month, faculty from the USA College of Medicine share their expertise on a specific medical condition, providing insight on the latest treatments available as well as promising new research.
